Thanks but it is is ON and always has been. I've even turned it OFF, than back ON after 10 munites, but to no avail.
Unfortunately, that is not the solution.

Did you ever open your iCloud email account in iCloud web page?

You'll need to ensure that you are using notes in the iCloud And not local notes on your iPhone or iPad, when you create the note. Go to settings, and then Notes to adjust the standard Account to iCloud. Then go to notes and tap Accounts at the top Left, and enter the iCloud Section. All new notes will now be in icloud. Old notes you have to copy and paste manually.

I do have an iCloud email account that I never use. All my mail is on gmail.
There are 5 messages in my iCloud mail, but nothing current. The latest message there is from early August.
I can find no way to change this though.

I do note that my Notes account for iCloud seems to be firstname.lastname@example.org
Where did you note that?
Try to open your iCloud email account in iCloud web page.
And update iCloud control panel on your PC.

If I go to the My Account Settings (clicking on my name on the Home page of iCloud) the Apple ID indicates email@example.com.
That is not my Apple ID (at least as far as I am concerned!)
As I indicated, my iCloud email account in the iCloud web page only shows a few very old emails, none more recent than early August.
The iCloud control panel on my PC is the most current as of today.
Keep the ideas coming.
So far, been there- done that on everything suggested :-)

Tried to sign out and sign in back to iCloud web page?

The same false Apple iD in your web-icloud settings?
Currently Being ModeratedSep 27, 2012 4:15 PM (in response to cheonweb)
I have been logging into iCloud with my firstname.lastname@example.org ID as that is my standard ID.
But if it try email@example.com then I get the same few and old emails and a Notes display that says "All iCloud (0)" vs "All iCloud (1)" with me normal ID.
However the iCloud (0) contents frame on the left is empty vs having an empty New Note entry.
The false Apple ID is worse than the correct gmail one.

Ok. Try to turn on for a while your iCloud email on iPhone. (Settings>email, Contacts, Calendars> iCloud. Then try to make a new note on web-Icloud ane see if it syncs. If this works you can turn off your icloud mail again.

Will do. Interesting suggestion. Since Notes was originally tied into Apple email (in its own private folder) that is a shrwed suggestion.
When Notes finally appeared in the newest iCloud release, I had asusmed that it was finally an App in its own right, but if you are right, then Apple has just "dressed up" the original method and mail is still needed.
I'll report back what happens!

Turned on iCloud Mail on the iPhone (along with Notes) and added a new Note.
Waited one hour and checked into PC iCloud Notes web page and there are no changes, so my new note never got there.
Then tried adding a new note on the web page ,but when I did I received an error comment "new note" could not be saved. Please try again later.
It appears there is no web based connection into the iCloud for Notes, Mail, or Calendar BUT all of my Contacts sync between all devices instantly and without issues.
How can one work but the other three fail?
