if you've got just some simple text, then you're right, why not view it in
Notes or NewtWorks
(you could even manually add some formatting).
if text is particularly long, then compiling plain text into a Paperback
application is another approach (esp. since Notes has size limits).

Newton books are a nice container for info if you've got formatting,
layout, graphics, navigation (e.g., table of contents via overview), live
links/cross-references, active objects, etc. the builtin book reader lets
you add bookmarks, annotations, turn pages, etc.
