It would actually help if you provided more complete examples of
what you tried to do. If the example you show below is what you
typed in the lyrics section, I fully understand why nothing works.


First of all, you have to realize that the syllables are separated by blanks.
If you want to include a space or any special character such as curly
braces in a syllable you have to add double quotes around the full
syllable. Thus, you probably want

mylyricsline = \lyrics{ "\\R{\\hebalef}" ... }

which should result in a \hbox{\R{\hebalef}} command in the generated
TeX file.

It is doubled.
\\R { "\\hebalef" }
There is an error in  the log file which complains about undefined
control sequence.





What I need is someone else on the list to who could try this out as

well. I am getting the feeling that either I am just consistantly doing
something wrong or there is a bug in lilypond-book or ???

Here you have a problem: the backslash did not get through.
Double it!
