The only unicode characters I ever need are in fact, on rare occasions,
some Latin-1 character (à é è ç ö ü etc.) in a song title.

The ASCII editor I use accepts these characters, but then LilyPond \markup
just skips them.

I would rather not switch to a utf-8 editor.  Is there any way to
incorporate Latin-1 (or unicode) characters into an ASCII LilyPond file,
using HTML notation or some other trick?  It wouldn't have to be
"convenient" if it would just work.  I have used only LP's built-in roman
and sans fonts; would using an external TTF (TrueType) font give me access
to Latin-1 characters that LilyPond would recognize?

I'm running LilyPond 2.6.0 under Windows.
