## Re: markup{} vs TextScript

Well, I am really just asking whether markup is more than a text script or not. If it would cause less confusion to regularize the terminology than it would to not change it, then it would be a good thing, but I aggree that that would be unlikely.

```Related to the answer on \mark versus \markup that I just sent,
I don't fully agree on the change below, since \markup can be
used in several different contexts, not just for text scripts.
Examples

\property Staff.instrument = \markup{...}

\lyricsmode{ Here is a flat sym -- bol: \markup{\flat } }

\mark \markup{...}

c4^\markup{...}

Thinking about it even more, I realise that having a link to TextScript in the programming reference somewhere under 7.4 Text markup instead of just under 5.7.5 Text scripts to make up for the confusion in terminology that Text script and Text markup are two terms that basically describe the same thing.

Thanks, this is a useful report.  Fixed in CVS.

I can (and will) certainly update the docs to reflect this, but would it be possible
```to standardize the lilypond internals?  Could "TextScript" be renamed to
"TextMarkup" and "TextScriptEvent" be renamed to "TextMarkupEvent" ?
I think that's a better solution than renaming \markup{} to \script{}.

Cheers,
