Wth this answer, I tried to use jTab's custom chord syntax (ref) to display a normal chord shape with non-standard fingering. Hunting around in questions tagged chords, the only example I found just used the bare names and let jTab implicitly select the standard shape.

So here's all the ways I tried:

  • In a code block


  • In a code block with no appended display name


  • In a div tag

  • In a div tag in a code block


And I'm out of ideas. Help? Is this feature activated? Am I doing it wrong(ly)?

  • Earlier I was seeing strange errors in the revisions view -- there were things like <div etc=""> shown on the staff. I assumed it was a problem with Chrome beta since I didn't see it in FF, but maybe not. – user28 May 3 '12 at 0:43
  • This is the sort of English up with which I shall not put. :) – luser droog May 3 '12 at 3:59
  • I got the <div> tags from the jTab examples page. Even there, it suggested the effect should be merely cosmetic. I thought it might get processed differently and potentially trigger the "right" thing. I confess CSS scares me. – luser droog May 3 '12 at 4:05

We're currently on an older version of jTab that doesn't support that particular custom chord syntax.

Never fear, though! I'm pushing out the latest version of this awesome library, so your post should work soon.
