\title{A short document with LilyPond and xelatex}

Normal \textbf{font} commands inside the \emph{text} work,
because they \textsf{are supported by \LaTeX{} and XeteX.}
If you want to use specific commands like \verb+\XeTeX+, you
should include them again in a \verb+\ifxetex+ environment.
You can use this to print the \ifxetex \XeTeX{} command \else
XeTeX command \fi which is not known to normal \LaTeX .

In normal text you can easily use LilyPond commands, like this:

{a2 b c'8 c' c' c'}

and so on.

The fonts of snippets set with LilyPond will have to be set from
of the snippet. For this you should read the AU on how to use

Auch Umlaute funktionieren ohne die \LaTeX -Befehle, wie auch alle
seltsamen Zeichen: __ ______, wenn sie von der Schriftart
unterst__tzt werden.

Other languages: espaƱol.
