A description of how to encode pedal marks in **kern spines.

Sustain pedal marks can be encoded in Humdrum **kern data by using *ped to indicate a down-pedal mark and *Xped to indicate an up-pedal mark:

Try adding or removing pedal up/down marks in the above Humdrum data to see how the notation on the right changes.

Pedal marks can be added graphically in VHV by clicking on a note and pressing alt-p to add a down-pedal mark or alt-shift-P to add an up-pedal mark.
