I'm using 2.6.5.

Thanks, I already got an answer here to this question. I used " \context {
\Staff \remove Time_signature_engraver }" in my \layout statement.

Where can I find the Regression Test Document, and the Mailing List

>>3) How do I coax Lilypond into displaying the extra word "There" at the

No, I don't mean that. I want the last note to be assosiated with a rest,
that has notes beneath it in polyphony.

Oops. Sorry about that. I'll be posting both the .png and the .ly files to
my website then.
