If you write (or significantly modify) any lilypond examples, be careful about the limited spacing in the manual. Specifically, all examples in the manual are created with this block:

\paper {
  #(define dump-extents #t)

  line-width = 160\mm - 2.0 * 0.4\in
  ragged-right = ##t
  indent = 0\mm
  force-assignment = #""
  line-width = #(- line-width (* mm  3.000000))

Unless you're demonstrating some funky \paper stuff, you're not allowed to change these settings. So make sure your example looks good inside that spacing (ie no leftover bars on the next line, etc).

Inspirational headwords have the same settings, except that the staff-size is set to 16.
