```Thanks.
I assumed it wasnt code and some arbitrary form of quotation.
thanks that settles it.

To the other post.
Definitely three steps above in my browser.

```From the Lilypond manual,
"http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.19/Documentation/notation/figured-bass";

I use the following code for figured bass.

(The code is 3-steps above "Predefined commands" at the end)

\new Staff = "myStaff"
\figuremode {
<4>4 <10 6>8 s8
<6 4>4 <6 4>
}
%% Put notes on same Staff as figures
\context Staff = "myStaff"
{
\clef bass
c4 c'8 r8 c4 c'
}

```
If I compile it with Lilypond I get the attached image image-1 and with lyluatex I get attached image-2. Both image-1 and image-2 disagree with what the manual shows the code should output. What do I do wrong ? [...]

You arbitrarily omitted the double angle brackets shown in the
example, which indicate simultaneous expressions.
