it's more like 500 +/- 100, really. i dunno; a lot depends on font size. i 
noticed when rereading HP4 that the text and spacing are a lot bigger than 
HP3 in the same edition. but MS&T has tiny, tiny text, large pages, small 
spacing, and he rarely if ever lets two people have back-to-back dialogue 
without injecting a paragraph of prose first.
