  | Ah.  Maybe my initial e-mail wasn't clear.

No, it was fine, I understood the context OK - it is just that this
is one of those rock and hard place situations - the places where
there is no period to end a sentence can just as easily be argued
to be incorrect.

Certainly one cannot simply move the training period to a new line
(and font style) all on its own, after the example.

That's why the usual solution to all of this is to rewrite and simply
avoid the issue (even if the final text then seems rather contrived and
stilted).
