As you can see, use of transparent rests in measure 7 
instead of silent rests solves the horizontal spacing
problem apparent in meaures 3, 5, and 6.  Thanks.

The dots are wrong in measures 4 and 10 and \dotDown
and \dotsDown give parse errors.  What now?

Poet is the wrong typeface.  How to fix?

How do I get page numbers of the style 1/1, 2/1, etc.,
and how do I get rid of the page number when there is
only a single page?

What happened to the copyright notice?

I'd like to try a transparent note in a fourth part to move
other notes to the right so that I can place a rest
for a center part before the bass and top notes. That seems
to be the only outright impossible situation now, as in measure
10.  If there is no transparent note, is there some other way
of doing measure 10?

How is a transparent note entered?

Can a rest be a notehead and the stem be made transparent?
That would give more precision and more probability of working
with future versions. Moving rests from places where they don't
belong anyway just doesn't do it for me.  If there is more than
one rest you also have to find which rest to move by trial and


It would be better to do \key D and \key d or IOW \key RE and
\key re because it would
save keystrokes.  There are only two modes in the system
of keys, major and minor.  Other modes cannot properly be
said to be in keys.  So:

\tonality g \mode mixolydian would be correct, but
\key g \mixolydian is just plain wrong--and its meaning
is not clear at all. It is hard enough
to explain to beginning students that key is two things, tonality
and mode, without that.  :-)
