Would it make sense to break this up into several documents and add a search function? You could still have a giant, one-page (and thus easily-printable) option, but maybe that wouldn't be the default.
The search feature I'm envisioning would just be a search of key words in the title of a box. A tag-cloud sort of thing might be a useful way of making some of the keywords visible too.

Subject: [CODE4LIB] HTML Load Time
I've got a LARGE finding aid that was generated from EAD. It's over 5 MB
and has caused even Notepad++ and Dreamweaver to crash. My main concern is
client-side load time. The collection is our most heavily used and the
finding aid will see a lot of traffic. I'm fairly adept with HTML, but I
can't think of anything. Does anyone have any tricks or tips to decrease
the load time? The finding aid can be viewed at <
