Warning on PDF generation

Watch out when you generate PDF files with Type1 fonts, 
some symbols may be missing in the output. The problem 
appears if you use dvips with both the flags -Ppdf and to get vector fonts for both music and text. 

With Lilypond 1.5.26, you may loose the accidentals, in 
version 1.4.9, you probably loose mensural note heads.
I guess that's why we haven't discovered the problem 

You can avoid the problems, if you use
~> dvips -Ppdf -G0 file.dvi
~> ps2pdf
note that the order is important, -G0 must come after -Ppdf.

The reason is described in

I'll update the instructions at
and in the FAQ.
