<title>Musical Notation</title>

<para>Dblatex does not itself present musical notation.  Of course,
images of musical scores can be incorporated into dblatex output as
can any other sort of images.  For a more comprehensive solution which
better integrates the typesetting of text with musical notation the
LilyPond project (<ulink url=""/>) provides a
facility for including musical notation within DocBook documents.
LilyPond provides a program, <command>lilypond-book</command>, that
pre-processes DocBook documents containing LilyPond musical notation
and which can automatically invoke <command>dblatex</command> to
produce PDFs integrating musical notation with text.</para>
