Glad to have the glossary back!

Let's make that a formal request then.  Instead of echoing the HDM 1944 
by changing the "staff" entry to "staff or stave", it would be better to
add a separate entry for "stave" ("var. of staff, q. v."), because in 
HDM there are entries like "staffless notation" before where "stave" 
would be put.  Consider that a mistake in HDM.  Since lilypond source 
notes *are* staffless notation it is not unlikely that you might choose 
to have such an entry.  There is nothing incorrect about the use of 
either word, but I think you will find "stave" more often used with 
numbers, as in "12 stave music paper" or "eight stave lead sheet", or 
even a "single stave".  DaveA
