Hi,

I am working to develop an xml wrapper for lilypond music notation.

lilypond has wonderful fonts and from its own language it can create
pdf's.

In creating the xml wrapper I have preserved the data such as note
names   [a b c d e f g a etc.] these correspond to musical notes that
need to be displayed graphically.

I would like to be able to display/print the xml using style sheets, and
it would be nice to just use the lilypond font set.

Is there a way I can do this with xsl-fo?

what bends my mind is that a letter a won't be displayed as a letter a
but the graphic representation of the note a (for those who know music
the second space on a staff with a treble clef ).

Any ideas on how to acheive this would be most appreciated.

Thanks
Aaron
