Use a URL in a note. Create a note with control-{. Create a link with  
control-N, give a brief description, replace the 'http://' with  
'file://' followed by the file path of a text file containing your  
notes. When in the note, control-L will open the links in the note.  
Your text file with your notes will open. Best, Mark
