Re: Episema not showing

I'm somewhat out of my depth here, but the
example in section (2.1 NR) seems
to try to draw a horizontal line over the
notes using both a ligature and a text
spanner.  Neither work.  It seems ligatures
don't work in VaticanaVoice, and there is
an interaction between the two which prevents
the episema working too.

If the ligatures, \[ and \], are removed
the example works, and episema using
\episemInitium and \episemFinis will work
over a single note too.

(Note \episemInitium is simply \startTextSpanner
and \episemFinis is \stopTextSpanner)

It is mentioned as one of the known issues in the ancient section of the
documentation that "The episema line is not displayed in many cases." That
in itself does not make it very useful, but it's doubly bad when it doesn't
even show up in the example that illustrates it.

I also noticed that there is a bug report/enhancement request to allow for
episemas over single notes, which I strongly support, since that is the
most common way to use it (either over a single note, or over one of the
notes in a ligature).
