but I've no idea how to string them together - Inline objects aren't text.
N.b. it would be really helpful if there was some concept-level documentation on the API describing the relationship of the various objects and methods in it. I've been wading through the rubydocs and the extensions lab for 45 minutes trying to figure this out, and am exactly as baffled as when I started. Maybe that just demonstrates I'm an idiot, but I find the documentation as it stands is basically useless for a newcomer (which I still am, despite occasionally poking at this stuff over the last 4.5 years).
