File ly/ (right):
ly/ #(define special-characters-alist
Is there any (public) command to add a replacement to that alist (or
remove one)?
Or do you have to repeat the whole list if you want to add/remove just
one entry?
ly/ ("\nbhyphen" . "‑")
ly/ ("_" . " ") ; thinspace
Will this work with words that have a wanted underscore? Or will the
underscore always be replaced with a thinspace?
ly/ ("\textbullet" . "•")
\\textbullet ?
ly/ ("\ng" . "ŋ")
Should that be \\ng?
ly/ ("\\OE" . "Œ")
Is the replacement always done on the longest string found? In
particular, if you wan to write ØE (Øe is a danish name apparently),
you'll have to use \\OE, which might or might not be matched with the
sequence for Πinstead...
ly/ ("\th" . "þ")
ly/ ("\times" . "×")
ly/ ("\twosuperior" . "²")
ly/ ("\threesuperior" . "³")
\\threesuperior ?
