It's a shame it doesn't work for the RTF backend, but it's probably

newline, not a new paragraph. And that might be incorrect since he standard
specifies it should create a sequence of paragraphs. I checked, and we use
make paragraph-break to get a soft return via jadetex ->PDF.
The more I think about it, the more I get confused. 
By the way, do carriage return (\U-000D;) and line-feed (\U-000A;) both
result in a paragraph-break?
