These marks are still too low on notes with stems.

data:text/html;charset=utf-8,<div style="font: 300px/1.5 FreeSerif">%F0%9D%85%97%F0%9D%85%A5%F0%9D%86%AA%F0%9D%85%9D%F0%9D%86%AA

The Unicode standard is not very helpful when it comes to its musical symbols. It’s not hard to find examples of these marks, though.

I did not know that.

Do you have a reference from the standards that explains this, or is it just something one knows from music?

Fix in SVN.

The musical combining marks U+1D1AA through U+1D1AD should be higher in FreeSerif. The marks should be high enough to not overlap a note’s stem, but they should also be that high even if the note has no stem (as in https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/21/Down_Bow.png).
