Issue 541: Hebrew lyrics diacritic not well aligned

Han-Wen, Thank you for your attention to this issue.

Actually I do not know how exactly to set font in lily.
Looking at the generated PostScript file text-code, 
I see (assuming I understand correctly) that I passively use:
  %%BeginFont: DejaVuSans
  11 dict begin
  /FontName /DejaVuSans def

The manual shows example of, 

  \markup {
    \override #'(font-name . "Vera Bold")

  (make-pango-font-tree "Times New Roman"
                        "Nimbus Sans"
                        "Luxi Mono"

But I don't know how to use these commands to 
efffectively set  AharoniCLM-Book  or  CenturySchL-Rom .
Could you please send  explicit  .ly files that do it 
for the small markup example you have suggested.

Then I will continue and generate the simple case so we can compare.

regards -- yotam
