Instead of using plain textboxes for notes, use rich textboxes. It allows you to use links to URLs, formatting (including bold, underline, italics, font type and font size, etc.), bullet points and numbering.

Use of a plain textbox for notes
Figure: Bad Example - use of a plain textbox limits the detail of the user's notes
Use of a rich textbox for notes
Figure: Good Example - with use of a rich textbox, you can use features such as bold, underline, highlighting and hyperlinks.
