Example
Inserting a single line: 

 .i string<return>
-or-
 .i<return> 
nnn+string<return>
nnn+<return> 

Note the space between the "i" command and the text being inserted. 
Without it, this will not work. 

Inserting a "null" line: 

 .i <return> 

Note the space following the "i" command. Without it, this will not 
work. 

Multiple lines may be inserted, if each text "string" (new line) is 
delimited with an attribute mark (<ctrl>+{shift}^). (The shift is only 
required when the up-arrow keyboard character is designated as a 
"shifted" character):

 .i newline1^newline2^newline3<return>
