I did some testing and you can add the ♫ or the ♪
character codes into the text of the .smi file and it should show up.

I'm not sure how this character code will be handled on non-English
computers, so that might take some testing. If you'd like to download a
sample .smi file with both character codes, you can get one at
You may need to save the file, then manually open with Windows Media
Player because Windows Media, Quicktime, and Realplayer all like to
fight over who owns the .smi file extension.

If it does not work, let me know.
