Neopaint PAL-file double entry's ?

For the first time I saved a custom PAL file with a palette.
I noticed that my new file was bigger than most of the neopaint PAL files.
Only Basic.pal+Cool.pal have a similar size.

The 2 file and my new file have 515 lines and the other files have 259 lines.

There seems to be a second complet set of RGB values.

Only for interest: For what is this?

NeoPaint for Windows saves two versions of the palette in a PAL file. The first half is compatible with NeoPaint for DOS. The second half is compatible with NeoPaint for Windows. The DOS version ignores the second half of the file and the Windows version can read either half, but favors the second half because it contains more information.
