Hi thanks for these.
will have to check out your own suggestion.
I have the lillypond manual, downloaded it sometime back. A middle ground
will be welcome, but I am 100% not a windows user.
Of course a dos compile would rock my universe. If not an option, then I
am either left constructing just enough of a Linux box for my work, the
question that started this thread, or perhaps a mac option, which I would
rather not do, unless really necessary.
