The correct usage of the pilcrow sign "¶" (as I understand) is to begin a paragraph, or to indicate a paragraph on a page that is not laid out with ordinary paragraph line-breaks.
I'm writing a technical report and it happens that a page break coincides with a new paragraph, opening with a word that cannot be capitalized. The second page unfortunately appears to continue the preceding paragraph.
If I put a pilcrow sign in the text at the top left of the page, will readers understand that a new paragraph is beginning or will they just be confused?
Bonus question: Would it be helpful to put the sign in front of any uncapitalized paragraph following a table, diagram, or such?
Edit: This question is about comprehensibility, not about aesthetics. I'm asking whether the punctuation is so obscure that it might do more harm than good. (There's a close vote.)
