content server: highlight that spans paragraphs picks up text of last note

Bug Description

Calibre 6.15.1 - content server
Firefox 112.0 for Linux on Pop_OS 22.04 LTS
books in EPUB format, converted by Calibre

After applying a highlight to some text and adding a note,
subsequent highlights that span paragraphs are created with the text of that previous already in the note field.

This does NOT occur with subsequent highlights that do not span paragraphs (say, picking up a word or two in the middle of a paragraph) - these highlights work normally, with no text appearing in the note field (until it has been explicitly typed by the user).
