Have a look at, which registers itself as a handler for the textedit:// protocol. You could launch Preview on 10.3, and use the same mechanism there.

I certainly could. That just precludes the possibility of "almost live" previewing on 10.3--in LilyPad, you don't actually have to save or explicitly execute any command to have your preview be up to date.

Yes, I wondered about that. Isn't it possible to make Preview close or revert the PDF by sending it the right apple event?

A question about using textedit:// URLs: is it not conceivable that you might want to have different handlers for textedit:// links in different kinds of files? E.g., LilyPond or LilyPad for PDFs generated by LilyPond, and TeXShop for TeX-originating PDFs?

In which case, might it not be better to define a LilyPond-specific URL scheme, say, lilypond:// ?

I invented the textedit protocol, so I don't think so. And we can fix it later, if we like.
