Hi Abraham,

Thanks for this explanation. Now that I have read up on this, for TrueType at 
least, I see that FUnits, or font units are used, and that there are a given 
number of units-per-em for a specific design, say 1000 or 2048 and so on. I 
can’t find much reference to em-units - to me that suggests 'units of em’s'. 
Would it not be units per em? I assume this is what you are referring to, that 
fonts designed for lilypond are made with a metric of 1000 font units per em.
