There is no specific way to turn it off.  But if you don't
have any xml tags in your paragraph, you won't get any
special formatting.  Plain text input is both legal and
extremely fast to process.

What goes wrong when you initialize a paragraph with plain text?
Do you have lots of '<', '>' and '&' characters?
