Ugh! Almost certainly! Word is very bad to use as a text editor
because it puts in all kinds of extra hidden stuff, even if you tell
it to save as a text file. At the very least, the line endings are
almost surely wrong. Run the following command on the file to fix the
line endings and then try again.

perl -pi -e 'tr/\015/\012/' Lilypond-LaTex.engine
