 > Please, is there a way to get diacritics signs in a text with CMN ?

If you know where they are in the font, you can embed the font location
in the text:

   (cmn (prolog #'(lambda (score)
                     (make-ISO-encoded-version score
                       "Times-Roman" "ISO-Times-Roman")))
     staff treble
     (c4 q (text "s\\374\\337"
             (dy 1.5) (dx -.25) (font-name "ISO-Times-Roman")
             (font-scaler .5) (gray-scale .25))))

which is "s" "u-umlaut" "double-s".  My grandfather spelled
my last name with a-umlaut -- I should figure out how to do
that in a sig line.
