Note Text not appearing.[SOLVED]

Hi!, back again with another noob question.

I'm trying to get notes working, but every time, the title of the note and the note text do not show up.

Here is my extra_english.lang file:
<LANGUAGE>
    <CATEGORY Name="CustomStoryMain">
        <Entry Name="Description">"You are trapped in your house, with all your servants and family, who have changed. Escape!"</Entry>
    </CATEGORY>

    <CATEGORY Name="Journal">
        <Entry Name="Note_note1_Name">Changes</Entry>
        <Entry Name="Note_note1_Text">My name is Hermann Ronalds, and these are my final words in case i dont stay alive.[br] My servants and family, have... turned on me somehow.[br]They used to be friendly people, but when i went to the sitting room when i woke up, one of them was there.[br] Not a friendly face, but a horrible shadow of a man. It was like he rose from the dead.[br] Luckily, he didn't see me. I ran back to my room, and I am going to try to escape this house.</Entry>
    </CATEGORY>

</LANGUAGE>

I have set NoteText in the world editor to "note1", so it should work.
What am i doing wrong here?

Khaaaan!

RE: Note Text not appearing.

Is that your entire file? There's nothing about the notes in there
Edit: iPhone wouldn't let me scroll, sigh, sorry about the confusion.

I think I know what's going wrong.
-Open your map in leveleditor and click on the note.
-Go to the entity tab
-Below, there should be a box with NoteText above it. Type the name of the note there. Then the program will know which entries to search for. (so in your case, type: note1 there)

Try without the "1", try renaming everything like: "note1" into "firstnote"

RE: Note Text not appearing.

I see you have a description for your custom story. Was that showing up before you made the note text? Does it still show up?
