One more point. I notice you state that your PlainText view is disabled. This is common when certain CMS systems are used (we provide CMS vendors that create integrations with a setting to turn it off) and is usually done so for good reason (editing in PlainText view can mess up some XML source the CMS may rely on that must be there but that authors should never touch). Note that the same setting (to turn on PlainText) is available to non-CMS customizations as well as it is a standard API included with the product.

If this is the case you will also want to check with whomever manages that system that this workaround isn't going to mess things up by inserting Change Tracking (which uses PIs) into documents. It is possible that such 3rd party software assumes you could not do that (given the limitations) and might not expect to see it.
