Greetings everyone,

sorry for the leak; I've made Reinhold's plans public on the "LilyPond
Report" last issue; however I'm confident that not enough people read
it to start a polemic right now :)

I like it!

So did I say two months ago when I first started playing with the CSS.
It's merely a draft, and it's sole purpose was actually to show Graham
we could do things :)

Yes, however, please let us not loose LilyPond's identity!
I remember having almost had a heart attack when I saw Jonas'
suggestions six months ago:

In other words, KISS :)

John: I do like sans too (obviously, since I was the one who coded it
in the first place). Sans fonts have been very fashionable for the
last decade; but feel free to bet on next decade's fashion changes :)

What do these three full stops mean? :)

I'm just glad to see that these opportunities are offered now; I think
a community needs to be motivated by visible (superficial) spectacular
initiatives, more than *really* important (but invisible to them)
program code etc. In other words, IMO you have to make it sexy to
motivate people.
