You have \include "english.ly"?  "!" is not supposed to be a special
character in English, but perhaps in Dutch it is.  Otherwise, you have
found a bug to report.  Try "\\!" and "\!" .  Thanks for the question,
because if "$\\!$" gives a bit of negative space I'll be very glad I
looked it up in The Not So Short Introduction to \latex 2\epsilon''.
With math mode, "\!" should give you some negative space in text, and
that should be very handy for us if it works.

Ascii is probably not going to happen, but see 3.10 and 5.4 in your
downloaded and printed copy of "The Not So Short Intro..." and I think
you'll be pretty happy.  DaveA
