Use the tagging methods, with the tag name of

I'd really like to see the Export to HTML add-in updated to handle
this. See this bug:
Really, you should be able to select any set of notes, or a notebook, or
all notes, and export them. It should be pretty easy to update the
existing add-in to do this, and then everybody can benefit from having
it right in the Tomboy UI.
I should think it would be pretty easy to decouple the XSL/HTML part of
this from the rest of it, and make pluggable export backends for people
who want PDF or other formats.
Anyway, whatever you end up doing, looking forward to seeing it!
