In principle they are part of the text  In implementation, thet are  
not. The pilcrows are held in an attribute as a Unicode character.  
(OSIS doesn't allow ¶ or other non XML entities.) They are a  
special type of punctuation.

We'd have to change the plain text filter to show them. The Lucene  
analyzer strips punctuation and may strip it.

(We had lightning hit that jumped the UPS and surge protectors,  
damaging our computers, here at the house. They are in the shop for  
diagnosis. This is all to say, I'm pecking this out on my iPod and am  
keeping my replies a bit short, less precise.)
