Wow! Congrats indeed. That's really great! I really hope this gets used a
lot; I'd love to see full classical music scores on Wikipedia / Wikisource
(especially since these are the least likely to be copyright-encumbered)
Regarding a lilypond code generation tool:
Last time I used lilypond, I used jEdit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/jEdit
It's not web-based, but it is open-source (GPLv2) and multi-platform (I run
it on Windows and Linux). Its LilyPond plugin has a number of features (pdf
generation; midi generation) and also a "virtual piano" to generate markup.
If you're interested, here are some basic steps:
- Download / install jedit from here: http://www.jedit.org/
- Select Plugins -> Plugin Manager
- Select the Install Tab. Select and download the LilyPondTool
- Depending on platform, you may have to configure the LilyPond binary
path. Go to Plugins -> Plugin Options -> LilyPondTool -> Commands
Hope this is useful...

<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Note> seemed like an easy target for
demoing the newly deployed Score extension
(<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Score>) on a production site,
if anyone's interested. I tried looking around for a point and click
lilypond or ABC code generation tool (preferably Web-based), but a lot of
these tools quickly went over my head.
