First of all, please read the section in the manual for version 2.4
on how to set input encodings. It has changed since version 2.2.
Actually, I see now that the text at
is slightly unclear, but it does not work to specify the inputencoding
within \header{...}, you should do it within a \paper{...} or
\layout{...} block.

I have a problem with putting grave accent over the letter `u' in word più.

I have tryied:

a_\markup{\italic{più}}   - letter ù from French keyboard and

It works well with latin1 character encoding. However, from
http://orwell.ru/test/CP/_?cp1250 it seems that the character
is not even included in the CP1250 character table, so you cannot
really hope to make it work with CP1250 encoding, as far as I

a_\markup{\italic{pi\\`u}} as TeX encoding

Just add double quotes around the full syllable:
a_\markup{\italic "pi\\`u"}


but I got in first case error message:

warning: can't find ascii character: 249

and in second:
error: syntax error, unexpected $undefined:
c''8->\) r8 d''16[\( c''_\markup{\italic cresc.} b'_\markup{
                                                          \\`u} c'']

When I add più in header as title in pdf u with circle over it is displayed,
when I add pi\\`u in header as title it works -- I have ù in pdf.
It was tested on  2.4.2 version and my header is:
\header {
fontencoding = "T1"
inputencoding = "cp1250"

When I apply  in header
encoding = "TeX"
I still can't display ù via \\`u (a_\markup{\\`u})
and in title I can.???!
