The notes (in Edit Person dialog) had increased spacing to help visually=20
distinguish the paragraphs. You could type a very-very long line (no=20
carriage returns) and it would be wrapped around to form a single=20
paragraph. These lines would appear single-spaced betweeb each other.
Inserting newline would make it look like another paragraph, because of=20
the increased spacing.
With all that, the appearance of note in the output would not be=20
double-spaced, it's just a visual aid in the dialog.
In current CVS (and in upcoming 1.0 release) the notes have explicit=20
format selection (flowed versus preformatted). The flowed format would=20
replace (in the reports, that is) all the tabs, multiple spaces, and=20
single newlines with single spaces, and format the text according to the=20
soace available (page width, font size, etc.). The new paragraph is=20
denoted by two consecutinve newlines (i.e. an empty line).
The preformatted note preserves all the text formatting: newlines, tabs,=20
multiple spaces are all honored in the output.
