Hmm, that's a pity -- I honestly thought that "(Music Glossary)
double sharp" looked better.  I'm certainly willing to live
without it, though.

Everybody hates frames so much that it's not worth doing it that

This looks like a good compromise.

Great!  That would be fantastic.  I have some quibbles about the
middle block; IMO it would be good to have one or two items on the
bottom line.  I have no particular idea how to divide them up at
the moment, though.

Can we add arbitrary text to the [?] section?  it might be good to
insert the LM 1.6 About the documentation  text in there.  (at the
moment I'm just asking if this is possible, not making a real
feature request)
