As a novice to lilypond, I have encountered two stubborn problems for which I have found no solution. 1. When I use grace notes (or appoggiaturas or acciaccaturas) the vertical alignment (in a piano staff system) is messy.
In what sense? Is it the problem described at the end of the section on grace notes
in the manual? Otherwise, I recommend you to include a small but complete
(so it can be run directly through lilypond) example in an email to the mailing

2. In spite of many assurances that emacs (which I use as editor) supports unicode (utf8), I have not been able to produce words that contain diacritical characters. I have tried to use the code used in latex, but that doesn't work either.
Any help expressed in clear language will be appreciated.

Unless you have some strange settings in your .emacs file, you can tell
Emacs to use UTF-8 in the current file by pressing
and then
and RETURN. The next time you save the file, it should be in UTF-8.
To make Emacs remember this setting for this particular file, the next time
you open it, you can add the following lines at the bottom of the file:
%%% Local Variables:
%%% coding: utf-8
%%% End:

There are also methods to tell Emacs to use UTF-8 encoding for all files, but
I'm not sure what else you use Emacs for.
