Ok, I got confused with this discussion. It didn't line up with my memories,
so I pulled out my (very, very) seldom-used keyboard, plugged it in, turned
on the newton (130) and opened the Notepad. Since it had just launched,
there was no cursor. I checked, and then started typing. The cursor showed
up at the beginning of the line after the previous text in the note (which
was located in about 1/2" from the edge of the screen. The cursor showed up
toward the edge of the screen of the next line. It went, basically, right
where I would have expected it to. I then created a new note--again, no
cursor--and started typing, and the cursor showed up at the top, left of the
note, and entered the text I typed there.

What am I missing in this discussion? This is consistent with my
experiences. (I just tried it in the built-in to-dos, and it worked there
also, although with a bit of a delay.)
