This "Otherwise" below could be the complement to the initial "If", or 
could be part of a "matches" pair of example sentences. At least on my 
initial reading I paired it via the 'matches'.

A blank line separator make make it more obvious.  Alternatively, make 
the "For example" parts flow as part of their previous lines.
If you go for an additional blank line then the next next para needs to 
clarify it's 'above' as their will be two paras, not one.
