Hi David,

I'm afraid you misunderstood Graham here (as I did earlier). Snippets
pages are absolutely NOT unrelated. Perhaps you know that LSR snippets
are now tagged by theme, *but* also according to their relevance as
documentation resources.

In other words, on the "Pitches" snippets page, you will find *only*
snippets that have been

-tagged as "Pitches": i;e. they deal with a subject that is related to
pitches definition and/or modification
-but *also* tagged as "docs": that means these snippets have been
considered interesting for the docs.

Besides, as Graham pointed out, in the Notation Reference sections, we
have the ability (and we do use it a lot) to quote specific snippets
if these are really important.
