I thought the idea of wrapping SVGSalamander would work well. Any reason not to pursue that?

Are there fonts that support musical notation? That might render more efficiently than something
defined in SVG.

and converted SVG Webfont glyphs into images so that they could be rendered with the greatest
possible speed. Because the glyphs in my case are music notation symbols I was not as inclined
to want to use a scenegraph of nodes because there would be performance issues if to many
music glyphs were rendered.
