I once used BBEdit to extract the text from a Newton book. You can do this,
but you have to remember that text in a Newton book is in Unicode, so each
character is two bytes (and in some editors shows up as a box in front of
each letter). Apple also sprinkles some binary formatting(?) codes in the
text but very easy to extract out.
