I have a very simple question. At http://www.geocities.com/aamehl/
I see (pehaps wrong at my isolatin browser):

\relative d' {}
}
\context Lyrics \apply #(text-augment "\\R{" "}") \lyrics {

äîáãéì áéï ÷åãù áéï
What is it ^^^^^^^^^^^^  ? It is not UTF-8. In my opinion it is Unicode.(?)
Or at least these are ASCII numbers with 7th bit == 1.

And still a simple question to Aaron: Do you see Hebrew letters on
NoteEdit board? Actually it should work, because I make no assumptions

And if so: If you export to LilyPond and you add the
directives from http://www.geocities.com/aamehl, does
this result in Hebrew LilyPond output?
