Hi Karl,

thank you very much for your detailed information which indeed clarifies 
a lot of things. I hope the package will eventually be worth the effort ;-)
(well, initial feedback from fellow LilyPond users indicates this might 
be the case ...)
(If you're interested you may have a look at this one-page example 
(this link won't be permanent).)

I will consider them one by one next time (it's kind of late now here in 
Just one general issue for now: the order of directories, the 
'lilyglyphs/doc <-> doc/lilyglyphs' thing.

When I wrote '/doc/lilyglyphs' or '/scripts/lilyglyphs' I was refering 
to a tds.zip file.
As far as I've understood I should consider the initial '/' to be 
equivalent to a 'texmf' directory.
Below that comes [doc|source|tex|scripts|...] and below these the 
Is that correct?

But when I do _not_ provide the tds.zip file (which would be a relief 
for me anyway) we're talking about the lilyglyphs.zip file.
This has /lilyglyphs as its root and then all the other dirs like doc, 
source or scripts below that. Right?

Thanks again
