Thank you! Meanwhile I'm aware of the fact that LilyPond can
show the numbers as Up- and Down-text. My question was because some
users requested fingering in NoteEdit and this is suggestive
iff the destination systems support fingering.

But I want to use this occasion to point to a more serious
problem (I know I already did it, but I don't get tired to
remember):

It is not possible to tie only a subset of a chord:

< e2 ~ g c ~ >  < e g c >  ("extended" syntax)

I know you default answer is: "Split it into voices!"
But this is a great effort for such a small request.

Furthermore: Think about how far away the "g" is
from "c" and "e" although it belongs to the same chord.

And it is not connected to the same stem. Ok, this last
statement could be wrong. In *my* solution it is not
connected to the same stem:

\include "paper20.ly"
violinA = \notes\relative c' { \voiceOne
\clef violin
< e2 c' > ~ < e c' >
\bar "|."
}
violinB = \notes\relative c' { \voiceTwo g'2  g }

Violin = <
\context Voice="ViolinA" \violinA
\context Voice="ViolinB" \violinB
>
\score {
\context Staff="violin" \Violin
}
