In my current git[1] (1ebd768) you can set if a note allows cross references based on the tag(s) on the note. If you add multiple tags on a note and any one tag dis-allows cross refs the note will turn them off.

If you want to test, and you're using an existing install you'll have to setup the tags manually. If you use a fresh install or remove the tags file (~/.kde/share/apps/basket/tags.xml) the only tag that's set to turn off cross references by default is "Code" if you think there should be any others please let me know.

It is good; however, since the "Code" tag might be useful in some
other places, IMHO it is better to have both these features. I mean if
a note is tagged as "Code" it will not be able to have neither
cross-references nor HTML (or any other kind of formatted) text.


At some point I think it would be good to use a KatePart and get syntax highlighting, code folding, spell check, etc...
