I'm post this to both bug- and -user as I'm not sure what's going on.
The following file is essentially self-explanatory:


\version "2.10.20" %% On Windows

\header {
        title = \markup {
                %% commenting out \italic allows proper rendering

\score {
        \relative c' {


Leaving in '\italic' causes every umlaut to be rendered incorrectly.
It's looks rather like a single curly quote on its side.

I stumbled upon this problem in an odd way.  My Linux laptop, where I
prefer to do my Lily work had something go wrong.  There's some problem
with Xwindows.  I was able to run it without X running and managed to
upload some work I did not have duplicated elsewhere.  I simply uploaded
it to my web space and then downloaded it to another machine running
Windows.  I was making some minor edits (jEdit) and some test prints.
All was well for a while.  Then I noticed some anomalies.  In a lyric an
umlaut-a had become an upper case A with tilde followed by the universal
currency symbol (I think).  The lower case 'u' with grave was also
different.  This was obviously some sort of encoding issue.  I would
suppose something happened to these characters when they were placed on
the web server, or on their way back to me.

I was able to correct the 'u' with grave but not the umlaut-a nor any
other umlauted vowel.  It's puzzling as I have gone through and tried
editing the input but in the case of the umlaut-a in the lyric line at
prints as A-tilde currency in the PDF.
