LilyPond is not unique in making music notation: there are a lot of programs that print music, and nowadays most of the newly printed music is made with computers. Unfortunately, that also shows: just ask any musician that plays classical music: new scores do not look as nice as old ones.

What is the difference between hand-work and machine work, and what has caused it? How can we improve the situation? This essay explains problems in music notation (software), and our approach to solving them.

FEATURES:

TE Automatic spacing, line breaking and page breaking.
TE Handling of polyphonic collisions for notes, dots, and rests.
TE Automatic placement of accidentals, beams, slurs, ties, based on optimal scoring algorithms.
TE Users don't need typographical expertise to produce excellent notation.
TE No user interaction necessary during running. Running the program can be automated which is convenient for mass converting databases of digitized music and printing algorithmic compositions.
TE The Feta font has been tailored especially for LilyPond, and was designed carefully mimicking the finest hand-engraved scores. It is available as a scalable font, but also as a Metafont.
