Big improvements in look and in readability/usability of the menu bars
(especially the second-level; it's now really easy to see which item is
Top-level menu: odd thing where the selected item has a black line on
the bottom, except for the leftmost 'lily' button.
GPL page: should the page mention that Lilypond is released under GPLv2
Testimonials page: note that the convention for English with multiple
paragraphs being quoted is to _begin_ each paragraph with an opening
quote mark but not close it until the end of the complete quote.
"That is to say, you do your first paragraph like this. You
open it with a quote mark, but at the end, do not close it.
"You then continue your second paragraph with an opening quote
mark, and close the quotes at the end of the complete quoted
section, like so."
Also, that you have double quote marks inside double quote marks (yes, I
know, you are literally copying and pasting from people's plain-text
emails; which is also why emphasised text is written *like this* instead
of being actual emphasis:-)
What's the difference between the essay referred to on the Introduction
> Background page and that referred to in Manuals > Introduction?
I recommend still referring to 'Learning Manual' even though only the
word 'Learning' has the hyperlink. Rationale: on the FAQ page, the
phrase 'You need to read the Learning' looks ridiculous.
Community > Contact: place a small note politely requesting users to
make sure they have read the Learning Manual thoroughly before asking
questions on the mailing list?
Introduction > Alternate Input: mention Frescobaldi?
Hope this helps,
