I agree and that is definitely where I'm starting.  I did discover in my
search an old message (from you I believe) about large tables being a bad
idea and discovered that I basically have a table that spans nearly the
entire document, because of the whole mess with keeps only being supported
in tables.  I'm in the process of breaking up the table which should
hopefully speed things up.  But even at 2 pages per second, the 125 page
document will take over a minute to produce, so I think some additional
optimization will be required.
