Google came up with this (from the first hit when querying on "inserting note lines by ispf edit macro")
•Message lines, note lines, and information lines. These lines are not saved as part of the data set or member unless you use the MD (make dataline) line command to convert them to data lines.
==MSG> Message lines inform you of changes to the edit profile. These changes are caused by inconsistencies between the data to be edited and the edit profile settings. Message lines also warn you that the UNDO command is not available when edit recovery is off.
You can insert message lines manually by using an edit macro that contains the LINE_AFTER and LINE_BEFORE assignment statements.
=NOTE= Note lines display information when you insert edit models. However, these lines do not appear if the edit profile is set to NOTE OFF.
You can insert note lines manually by using an edit macro that contains the LINE_AFTER and LINE_BEFORE assignment statements.
====== Temporary information lines are lines you can add to provide temporary information that is not saved with the data. They can be inserted into an edit session by using an edit macro containing the LINE_AFTER and LINE_BEFORE assignment statements.

i belive LINE_AFTER will inset a permanent line there ..please correct if I am wrong
The default is for LINE_AFTER (or LINE_BEFORE) to insert a permanent (i.e., data) line; however, you can specify a type of temporary line (info, message, or note) be added instead. All in the fine manual.
