/* DID YOU KNOW?
/*
/* You can also import comment files in the,
/* Teachers Report Assistant format.
/* There are 1000s around the web.
/* School Report Writer automatically converts them.
/*
/*
/* YOUR EXISTING COMMENTS ARE SAFE:
/*
/* When you upload, you will be shown the comments

/* are already in use and you can pick-&-click which
/* comments to add to your comment bank.
/*
/*
/* USE 'PLAIN TEXT' (.txt) FILES ONLY:
/*
/* Import files must be 'plain text'. The easiest way to
/* create one is to download a comment file from our site
/* and open it on your computer. On most systems it will
/* automatically open in a plain text editor. If you
/* make changes and save, the file should automatically be

/*
/* ADDING HELPFUL NOTES:
