And if you are using MS Notepad instead of free Notepad++, I suggest you
switch to the latter.  XML support for editing is quite good when you
turn on XML mode.

Don't know about notepad; in vi, control-v in insert mode quotes the
next character, and 1F is control-underscore, so control-v control-_
will put it there, as will (in gnome terminal) control-v followed by
control-shift-u and then (keeping shift held down) any hex sequence, in
this case 1F, to enter the corresponding unicode character.

Then I think you want a single document containing an xdm-sequence
top-level element. If you want to preserve sequences of strings then you
need per-item markup.
