[ that is, its source -- follow the production notes at the end
of the spec ]

Or the 1913 Websters Dictionary, about 30 entities of 1.5 Mbytes
each, http://metalab.unc.edu/webster/ ... and I'd hate to ever
see that turn into one 55 MByte file!

On a smaller scale, Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness" is
online at http://www.megginson.com/texts/darkness/index.html

Surely there are more.  Nothing to be afraid of with a tool
that's used appropriately!
