      As with about 2/3 of the questions I have myself with the program, the
      answer is: "Try it, and see what happens."

      I tried plugging it in to Obsidian Portal in a couple of places, but it
      didn't do much with it. I think Obsidian Portal may have changed how
      they do things since the file was written. Obsidian Portal currently
      uses Textile formatting (a stripped-down HTML, I think). The formatting
      here looks like what some message boards use --- specifically, the
      message board software Paizo uses.

      Copy-and-pasting it into a message in the Paizo boards gave a
      minimally-formatted character, although it didn't interpret the <br>s.
