I need the following three new symbols to be used in a document,
(where the body font is Palatino), and the output is generated
with pdfLaTeX. (These resemble some symbols already available are
available in MusiXTeX package):
i) an (upper) semicircle with the central dot, without the
diameter (this resembles the \musixchar80 (\fermataup), but that
symbol is too heavy and thick - I need a lighter version).
ii) a symbol similar to \musixchar63 (or \AcPA from harmony.sty,
but I need a slightly longer stem, and almost vertically
iii) A -30 degree slant (to left) calligraphic S, with a forward
slash and two dots, that is, \musixchar86 called \segno, but I
need the caligraphic S to be thinner.
I will be using these three symbols as "accent marks" placed over
English letters using "\stackrel".
(Unfortunately, I am unable to use MusiXTeX along with Palatino
body font since they mutually conflict, and I get lots of errors).
So, I would prefer these symbols constructed from usually
available symbols, avoiding the usage of MusiXTeX.
