Actually, I mean "grammatically and stylistically".  Also on

* http://lilypond.org/web/download/getting-started.html,

"(double click the "GNU LilyPond" or "Cygwin" icon)"
AIUI there is no GNU LilyPond icon (was there in the past?), and if someone
is getting started, then they will not have renamed the cygwin icon to
Lilypond yet.

cywgin -> Cygwin

Also I'm wondering whether there should be more detailed instructions for
getting started on Windows.  A friendly introduction, pitched at the
ordinary musician who might be a complete command-line, non-GUI newbie. The
recent help messages on the mailing list made me consider that Lilypond does
sometimes scare such people away, when they'd actually be OK if they took
some time to climb the learning curve.  I realise that we have to draw the
line somewhere with the hand-holding, but I think the (Windows users do
this) bits on "Getting started" may be slightly too terse.  I would be happy
to write such a document, but I'm not sure yet how it would integrate with
the rest of the "Getting started" instructions.
