    Hi All...

    I am trying to render Jesu Dulcis Memoria (and other chants) from Gregobase through the Source and Summit Editor... (absolutely love the S&S editor)... for some reason all the ligatures (ae with an accent), used to utilize a [sp] tag which does not work in the S&S editor... does anyone have the solution for rendering this with updated code? Thanks in advance.

    The Source and Summit Editor seems to accept the unicode characters ǽ Ǽ directly from the Windows character map , I don't know Macs.

    The old Illuminare editor, IIRC, created the letter ash automatically when typing A and E one after the other, no other coding (like < sp >) was needed. An accent was created automatically simply by typing the accent immediately following the vowel you wanted it attached to.

    I don't know if these are still the case in the new S&S editor.

    Found the Mac typesetting ligatures... they are what is now utilized. What a killer tool. I created all the chant pages for my hymnal in a single day.
