[TxMt] difference in line length measurements

I was measuring the character length of a line using the ‘line:column’ indicator in the bottom left corner of a TM 2 window until I had a reason to doubt its accuracy. I used the count words command to confirm. I have a line with 153 characters, and the ‘line:column’ indicator reads ‘157’ with the cursor at the end (which I would expect to mean there are 156 characters before the cursor). See attached. Why might this be?
