I believe Lilypond uses both Fata and Bravura.    I like the looks of
bravura font and it has a several sets of accidentals you name it plus the
standard Unicode accidentals as well all with afferent glyph code.    If
Lilypond is using Bravura it may be able to use all the accidentals as
well.   And I know that the use a name for them but I wanted to know if
inside the code the name refers to the Unicode.   I have went through many
of the references, including the developers, and found little on microtonal
accidentals.   I did find the Turkish accidental the ones that you sent
plus a very few parts others in the same place.   I know that Graham Breed
did some work on the Extended Helmholtz-Ellis, but it is not there.  He
said it used Unicode but, I think he said it was its own Unicode code
but he was not clear.  He got the font from someone else and may have got
the code also and it could be the same one that Bravura uses, lots of
contributors.   Bravura is the default font for the privet use area U+E000
to F8FF.

Could you direct me to the accidentals that Lilypond uses?

BTW I did get Denemo running took some time and a second down load.   It
did not make a Denemo icon in the start menu but it made all the rest.   I
played around with the with the accidental and made a button. tried several
things to cause it not to work.

The note past to Lilypond may have 4 parts/variables: note name,
accidental, octave, duration.   There is no space between the variables so
this string is not nested Scheme code?   Python handles this?

Than you, ƒ
