Yes, you're right.  But I'd say the other results are also interesting because 
they show that the same .xml-file is represented differently by different 
notation softwares (e.g. concerning page breaks , lyrics...)

I could try it again with a more complicated piece if you want.  Any

weekend, though. Sorry.
