I think that appearance is the key to how you show your notes and memos. By
creating additional lines each with a length of less than 80 characters, it
prints out to where you can read that a line is a note or memo. Programmers
have used this technique for years to make notes as to what a particular
section of code does.
When Steve wrote the program, he effectively created unlimited line sizes
for this area.
Again, I believe it to be a personal preference as to what you do.
Just remember that the primary reason for including these note and memos is
to make it easier to comment about a part of the deed. If you share that
info with others, the easier it is to read goes a long way.

Thanks very much for the explanation of the Rem and ! effects. I still
wonder about the length of the "Re" field for example because I have
not entered a Rem or ! at any point after beginning to enter text of
more than three lines. If this field is limited in length, then the
solution would seem to be to enter a ! and proceed with unlimited text
entry. Do you believe this would be possible without unwanted ill
