Take a look at the glossary included in the LilyPond documentation:

Thanks, I have taken a look now... altough I could not find it, this list is very extensive... so I'll look on in the list... I may have overlooked it...

There's also one more question...

I have one chord that looks like this:
<< <d d,>1 ~ \\ { <fis, a>4 <g b>4. <fis a>8 <e g>4 } >> << <d d'>1 \\ <fis a> >> The lower "extender" goes right through the notes... should it not be so that it should go under the notes?

<< d1 ~ \\ d,1 ~ \\ { <fis a>4 <g b>4. <fis a>8 <e g>4 } >> << d'1 \\ d,1 \\ <fis a> >>

The reason is that if you have
<<{first voice} \\ {second voice} \\ {third voice} \\ {fourth voice} >>
then the first and third have stems, slurs, ties, ... pointing upwards
whereas they point downwards for the second and fourth voice. Since you
kept the lower d in the first voice, the tie was curved upwards instead
of downwards.


Thanks, that did the trick... logical explatation too... if I could only think it up myself :-)

This is my piece now, but now that I also added a \midi block, there are problems with writing dvi output... midi output is pretty ok... it's not Lilypond's fault, I made some mis-interpretations which I can fix now... when I remove the \midi block output goes fine... If I place \midi somewhere else, everything goes wrong... it's not fair!
