When I display around 10Megs of text in it, it requires well over 100 megs of RAM (actuall used memory is 100Megs, while me heap is at like 160Megs).
WHY ??? This is totally unreasonable.
How do I fix this?

I believe this is actually a known problem that's persisted since something like 1999. There was recently someone complaining about the same thing on these forums, but I can't find the thread now. Maybe if you do a search that will help. There is some discussion here of a similar (if not the same) issue.
