Hi Urs,

In the ly file created by musicxml2ly, any quoted string contains strange characters which prevent Lilypond from compiling the file. On my system, they are displayed thus (I include Kate's warning):

This was discussed recently. I don't recall exactly what it was about but you might search the archives (both lilypond-user and bug-lilypond). I would think it has to do with the pretty old Python version shipped with LilyPond. As a workaround (you're right that's definitely not the way it *should* be) you should be able to remove these "characters" automatically.

Thanks for the pointer - I don't usually follow the goings on in bug-lilypond, which is where that recent discussion took place. I'm sorry!

For future reference: The problem is discussed in

It's not so bad since it turns out that (as Urs suggested) killing the spurious "Delta" signs by search&replace (e.g. in Frescobaldi) solves the problem. So it's just a slight inconvenience.
