They worked in the MC IDE, and IIRC in the Revolution IDE for a while as 
well.

Maybe what happened is that during the major Script Editor overhaul 
someone who wasn't familiar with the long history of those HyperTalk 
properties replaced them with scripted alternatives.

I like Panos' suggestion:

scriptTextSize

You'll also want to use those properties for any getters as well, given 
that they are global and perhaps settable by third-party plugins.
