[MEI-L] Colouring a note head

Hello Reinier,

Verovio does not (yet) support note at head.color, but it does support
note at color which will color the entire note (notehead, accidental, stem,
and articulation):
[image: Inline images 1]
Example MEI data:
<note dur="4" oct="4" pname="c" accid.ges="n" />
<note dur="4" oct="4" pname="d" color="limegreen" accid="f" />
<note dur="4" oct="4" pname="e" color="violet" accid="s" />
<note dur="4" oct="4" pname="f" color="chocolate" accid="x" artic="acc" />

Full example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<?xml-model href="http://music-encoding.org/schema/4.0.0/mei-all.rng"
type="application/xml" schematypens="http://relaxng.org/ns/structure/1.0"?>
<?xml-model href="http://music-encoding.org/schema/4.0.0/mei-all.rng"
type="application/xml" schematypens="http://purl.oclc.org/dsdl/schematron"?>
<mei xmlns="http://www.music-encoding.org/ns/mei" meiversion="4.0.0">
                <title />
            <pubStmt />
                <application isodate="2017-10-15T22:33:19"
                    <p>Transcoded from Humdrum</p>
                    <title />
                    <scoreDef xml:id="scoredef-0000000149144877">
                        <staffGrp xml:id="staffgrp-0000000843432731">
                            <staffDef xml:id="staffdef-0000001439065492"
clef.shape="G" clef.line="2" meter.count="4" meter.unit="4" n="1" lines="5"
                    <section xml:id="section-0000001557757882">
                        <measure xml:id="measure-L3" right="end" n="1">
                            <staff xml:id="staff-L3F1N1" n="1">
                                <layer xml:id="layer-L3F1N1" n="1">
                                    <note xml:id="note-L4F1" dur="4"
oct="4" pname="c" accid.ges="n" />
                                    <note xml:id="note-L5F1" type="marked"
dur="4" oct="4" pname="d" color="limegreen" accid="f" />
                                    <note xml:id="note-L6F1" type="marked"
dur="4" oct="4" pname="e" color="violet" accid="s" />
                                    <note xml:id="note-L7F1" type="marked"
dur="4" oct="4" pname="f" color="chocolate" accid="x">
                                        <artic xml:id="artic-L7F1"
artic="acc" />

If that is not good enough, I could explain how to use note at type and CSS to
color only the notehead (I would have to test that method first).
