How about encrypted notes, protected by a password, that even Stefan would not be able to view?

What are the pros and cons of providing some form of encryption for notes?

The funny thing is that I already thought about something like this. Because I use the Mac OS X keychain to store protected notes with some server login data.
The thing about encrypted notes is that to be really encrypted, all the encryption has to be done on the client (the browser). I have to check what encryption makes sense (performance) within JavaScript. But yes, I'm definitely considering this, not only for all the other users, but also for myself (because theoretically also the server provider could read all the data on the server).
