Hi there.  The client/server feedback delay is only really noticeable when the application sends the lilypond source to the server for rendering. Even there, since it's all done transparently in the background, it isn't that frustrating, since the user can keep working on other stuff - note entry and the like and there's no delay there cause that's all done with _javascript_ on the client.

But yeah I agree with you that 'Rich Internet Applications'  have been slow to catch on. Google has caught on (in fact I may use their toolkit for a familiar-lloking interface down the road) and others but web developers for the most part haven't.

For sure, I'll keep you posted. When's your presentation?

Looks like very interesting. It's quite a bit of time I think web-based
editors are the (only) future, but it seems that still in 2009 not many
people catched this. The greatest problem with web word processors is not
the features (these can be implemented easily), is the feedback delay on
many web operations. For a Lilypond user, this problem may not be
annoying... so it seems to me a good idea.
But I'm philosophying. Can you keep us updated please?
