      The idea of multiparagraph inline notes jarred me as well. As it happens, the target application is InDesign, and to determine the proper import format, I created a multiparagraph note within InDesign and exported the text as Tagged Text. I didn't expect to see a full CRLF in between note paragraphs within the parent text paragraph, but that's what Adobe does. I take your point that it may be valuable to enclose each note, no matter how many paragraphs, in a wrapper to designate note start and end.

      Thanks for your help. I'll try to review all the suggestions in the next few days.
