Dear friendly LyX-users...

Thanks, Julien! You seem to be the general LyX expert for me! That
worked perfectly, although the output is less than desired. At the
moment, it inserts another page with only the single bar of Lilypond
notation on it. Perhaps it would be better if a .png would be inserted,
rather like the OpenOffice.org Lilypond plugin, which compiles the
Lilypond code into a small image which is inserted into the document, or
at least it did last time I used it about a year ago.
Perhaps something like this is possible, but I don't know about it?
