Well, it's been a while since I cracked the Newton programming
manuals now safely covered with dust in the basement, but some small
part of my memory remembers that all Newton fonts are Unicode (even
though the NewtonScript input methods appear to use ASCII).

I think this is why NewtonBooks (in Unicode, double-byte) are twice
the size of the ASCII (single-byte) text.
