A `newline' here is probably a character with the `record-end?' property.
If you want it to also be a space, it should probably also have the
`space?' and `inline-space-space' properties. 

If this is the case, the result will still depend on the `lines' and
`ignore-record-end?' characteristics on the paragraph FO.
