Add tags Information and discussion about LyX, a WYSIWYM editor, available for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X systems.
I'm currently writing a work in phonology (linguistic) and I naturally have to use the tipa package to type phonetic symbols. I want to choose fonts for the symbols, so I downloaded the tipa manual.

So what >are< the tipa options? And how do I call them? In the manual there's only T1, 0T2 and T3 as sample encodings, but none of them changes how the output looks like... So what's the idea behind calling fonts?
I am mistaken, actually
Could you run my example again adding
