```Hello:
I am a university student in China and I am interested in making music
score by using computer. Recently I have found the lilypond which is created by
you and your fellow workers. The lilypond is fantastic! It is easier to make
some sheet music. However, I have found a problem. I have read the mannual of
lilypond but I haven't found the solution.  So now I am trying to make the
stave with guqin lyric.(Guqin is a traditional Chinese ancient instrument, and
it uses different characters as its lyric->e.g.
)  I made a ttf font by myself to display these characters. So in lilypond I
use \addlyrics command, and type these characters in it. The problem is when I
converted the ly file into pdf file. These characters cannot be displayed. I
know that English and Chinese words can be displayed as lyric. So I guess that
maybe there is some configuration files where I can let the lilypond find the
ttf font made by myself. But I don't know how to do that.
That's the reason why I emailed you and I hope that you could give me
some suggestion about how to solve this problem if you are free. I am looking
