Thanks for all your ambituous documentation updates!

I've just looked at the first few pages, but have a couple of comments:

- The cut-&-pastable-section of the first example contains lots
 of lines that are just confusing and should never be included
 in a stand-alone .ly file. Maybe it's better to not use the fragment
 option of lilypond-book and recommend the reader to only
 cut the lines after "ly snippet follows" (or whatever it says
 when you don't use the fragment option).

- There's a new paragraph before "to the end of the file".

- In "2.1.1 Compiling a file", there's a typo in "should be also be".

- The instructions for Windows need some polishing. Basically,
 you could more or less the same as on Mac, namely double-click
 the LilyPond icon on the desktop to start a simple text editor.
 I can come back with more details when I have a Windows box
 in front of me.
- In "2.1.1 Compiling a file", footnote 3: "have any tools" -> "have any such tools".

Could a few people proofread it? In the near future the translation teams will be working on it, so it would be good if we finalized node names and caught any major mistakes.
