```I cannot see any easy way to tell LilyPond to do the line breaking
automatically. However, if you stand to do that manually, the answer
to both your questions is to use Text markup, see the example called
score-text.ly in the "Regression Test" document (note that the
\book{...} isn't necessary) and the section on Creating Titles in
the manual.

I must be missing something obvious here, but how do I get Lilypond to insert a full paragraph of justified and line-wrapped text in the output? With the old TeX backend this was easy, just type the text (more or less), but I can't find a way to do it now.

```
To be specific, I want two things: Text between \score sections in a multi-score book, and line-wrapped text in the \header section where I sometimes have a comment field with a lot of text.
