## Maths code in header / voice names

 Hi! I want to write a kind of play with integrated music using Lilypond(-book) 2.4.3 and Miktex. What is the easiest/cleanest way to call one voice \mathbb{Q} , i.e. the mathmatical symbol for the rational numbers? I'm not very experienced in working with lilypond (just struggling to get the score in the text in a nice way...) so I would be glad for a rather detailed explanation. Thanks, Matthias                                 ___________________________________________________________ Gesendet von Yahoo!

## Re: Maths code in header / voice names

 You cannot use lilypond-book together with Miktex, since MikTeX doesn't know about the lilypond specific fonts and other additions. However, you can use the teTeX distribution that's included in Cygwin. If you just rerun the cygwin installation program and make sure that the packages tetex-base and tetex-tiny are installed, this should give you a TeX environment that is just as capable as MikTeX. Of course, it means that you have to run the latex command in a Cygwin command window, but I hope you can live with that.    /Mats Matthias Warkentin wrote: > Hi!
