A square could be good, yes. Like a unit selection in an RTS game.

The Sibelius solution is elegant, of course, but it limits what else you can use colour for. If the notes are coloured by selection, they can't really be coloured by pitch at the same time without everything looking confused, because colour is being applied in the same way to denote two different things.

I'm just really in love with colouring notes by pitch, in case you couldn't tell!
