Waitasec - soak? Did you say *soak*? As in, completely immersing your
Newton in Armor-All? Talk about risking your Newt's life... you could
have drowned it for good! :)

Anyways, that sounds like a pretty good idea for the case, but I'd be
kinda squeamish about putting it on the screen. Remember that one of the
features of the screen is that it has a "paper-like" texture to it - in
contrast with the early 100s and 110s and the Palm devices. I'd hate to
lose that texture - that's one of the reasons I can take all of my
university course notes on my MP2100.
