Multiline Fields (--)

If we want to assign multiple lines to a key, we do it like this:

-- my_poem
Roses are red
Violets are blue
The dashes and the key in the start and end line need to match
-- my_poem

If a line inside the mulitiline field looks exactly like the opening/ending line of the field itself, it can be "escaped" by adding any number of additional dashes to the -- operator in both the opening and ending line:

--- My Field
-- My Field
--- My Field

Note that leaving no line at all between the opening and ending lines produces a field with the value null:

-- My Field
-- My Field
