% \paragraph{Newline}
%    \cmd{\newline} or \cmd{\\} do not work in bookmarks, in text
%    annotations they should expand to \cmd{\r}. In pdf strings
%    \cmd{\\} stands for a backslash. Therefore the commands
%    are disabled now. The user can redefine them for a result
%    what he want:
%    \begin{description}
%    \item[backslash:]
%      |\pdfstringdefDisableCommands{\let\\\textbackslash}|
%    \item[new line:]
%      |\pdfstringdefDisableCommands{\let\\\textCR}|
%    \item[disabled:]
%      |\pdfstringdefDisableCommands{\let\\\empty}|
%    \end{description}
%    At any case, however, the optional argument or the star
%    cannot be scanned in a 100\% sure manner.
