   Since text insets remain text insets when a document is structured, the 
conversion table cannot change the imported content. In particular, it 
cannot specify an assignment of elements within them. It can wrap a new 
element around them. Use the code TI: in the first column of the conversion 
table to specify text insets.

That depends on the type of text inset. An XML text inset is saved as an 
entity reference; other text insets are converted to text on export.
