How it works

Click on the chords and lyrics to hear the sound. - This would be a useful feature on every chords/lyrics website.

Script parses all HTML tags in the document, and sets mouse event handlers to those with defined midi property. This property can include one or more notes separated by white space. Each note is defined by one, two, or three numbers, separated by colon:

There is also a midi_init property in the <body> tag that defines programs for used MIDI channels.
