In the relative octave section, paragraph beginning "When octaves are
specified", I suggest we replace "as above" with "in absolute mode",
"put a pitch" with "put a single pitch", and "prevents" with
"reduces". This should clarify the intent of the paragraph, and the
advantages of relative mode.
Under "automatic accidentals" the second paragraph is missing a ")" somewhere.
Is it worth mentioning that LilyPond will not place accidentals on
tied notes _except_ when the tie crosses a line break? (As an aside,
does anyone know of a way to parenthesize the accidental in that
Also, I love the Beethoven excerpts. Very classy touch.
