A "feature" of Newton Books is that they are formatted for a particular
screen size, never mind that Apple's Newton programming guidelines say that
you are not supposed to do that. Anyway, no, there is no way to resize a
Newton Book without recreating it.

HTMList is somewhat useful for doing this. It can convert a Newton Book to
a NewtWorks document, though some formatting is lost. It can also convert
a Newton Book to HTML, though some formatting and all graphics are lost.
In the case of HTML, you can then use Newt's Cape to generate a new Newton
Book. HTML to Newton Book conversion was my main reason for registering
Newt's Cape.
