Thank you for your reviewing.

I think it would be prudent to show all the inputs in one place, at
least their
defaults, so users know what acceptable. At the moment they are:
- #:music
- #:brace
- #:roman
- #:sans
- #:typewriter

I know the text font keywords show up in text.itely, but I think they
should all
show up together somewhere.

It is also important for users to understand that you can only apply
(set-global-fonts ... ) once per \book block since it resets the
variable each time you call the function. The following does work,

\paper {
   #(set-global-fonts ... )
\book { ... }

\paper {
   #(set-global-fonts ... )
\book { ... }

where each call to set-global-fonts only affects the book(s) following
it unless
re-called as shown.

I've added detail in `text.itely`.
Documentation/notation/input.itely:2866: you can use them in the same
way as Gonville.

This is true, but at the moment, the only allowed font names must have
following suffixes: -11, -13, -14, -16, -18, -20, -23, -26, -brace.
This is
easily remedied by modifying the internal function, but for now at the
level, this is a significant limitation because it assumes that the
music font
has ALL the above optical sizes and/or brace font. Not sure what
here is most appropriate, but I think we would should at least raise
this flag
so users realize that you can't use just any music font out there that
work with other apps (like Sibelius, Finale, Dorico, etc.).

Documentation/notation/text.itely:1627: #:factor (/ staff-height pt 20)

I'm not sure showing the use of #:factor is helpful here, unless we
also show
WHY, which is, if set-global-staff-size is used to change the staff
size from
the default of 20pt.

So, I'd either recommend removing this line or adding a staff size
change along
with an explanation.
