OK, I'm confused.  Do you want us to help you understand how Lilypond
input files work, or do you want us to fix bugs in Noteedit export

I'm willing to look for bugs in a Noteedit exported file, but in that
case, give us the whole file.  If you want to learn Lilypond (which is
what this list is normally used for), then I highly recommend writing
a few short pieces on your own (in a text editor, without using
noteedit at all).

Put a "%" at the beginning of the line.

Don't specify linewidth and textheight.

When you change A4 to Letter in gv, it doesn't actually change the
postscript file; it just changes the way it's displayed on your screen.
At least, that's what I think it does.  :)

It looks like that.
