NOTE: html tags cannot be included in the above. however, blank lines
will separate paragraphs, and if you care, some rudimentary formatting
is available with the following html-like tags (but note the square
instead of angle brackets):
- text[br]more text
- [quote]some quoted text[/quote]
some quoted text
- [link url="http://www.example.com/"]somewhere else[/link]
- somewhere else
