comment Why do certain rooms/vessels respond to specific frequencies?
Trombone comes to mind as an instrument that obviously changes in size to effect changes in the resonant frequencies.

comment Why does music seem to transpose when I yawn?
I always thought that the Eustachian tube en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eustachian_tube was involved, not so much a change in tension.

comment Rendering lilypond score into html page
Since you've shown some interest I wrote out my concept as an answer; Emacs is cross platform; if you're a vi user, look into viper-mode for emacs.

comment Rendering lilypond score into html page
This doesn't quite meet the requirement of the fundamental source being lilypond, but there might be a way to do this using Emacs Org-Mode, with the Babel/literate programming extensions to have an org file that contains the score, exports to HTML, and "tangles" the document into straight lilypond source.

comment Rendering lilypond score into html page
Is this what you want: (1) a single .ly file that contains the entire score and (2) some way to export snippets from it to HTML without having to manually/explicitly copy content from the score file into a separate file?

comment How does the type of wood used to make an acoustic guitar affect its sound?
I interpret this question as being significantly different from the violin one: this one (seems to) ask "What effects will different woods have", the latter seems to ask "Why should I care about the type of wood in a violin?". I cannot envision an answer to the "What effects..." question that is not one of (a) subjective or (b) a book length answer that goes into the overall design of guitars

Possibly useful: amjbot.org/content/93/10/1439.full Breedlove guitars has a more qualitative description breedlovemusic.com/features/top-woods-binding-styles , I've seen other similar (and similarly unsubstantiated) tone wood graphs in other places too.
