Thanks for your tactful suggestion that there might possibly be
operator error here. You were right, I had put the -Xmx switch on the
wrong line in xep.bat. It works!! It smoothly produced all 667 pages
of my PDF. Thanks! I am happy now.

Here's what I did wrong. There are two alternate command lines in
xep.bat, chosen by logic. I only put my -Xmx420M on the top line,
when it was the bottom line that was being used.

if x%OS%==xWindows_NT goto WINNT
"C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_06\bin\java" -Xmx420M {{WRONG PLACE}}
-classpath "%CP%" com.renderx.xep.XSLDriver "-DCONFIG=C:\xep\xep.xml"
%1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9
goto END

"C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_06\bin\java" {{RIGHT PLACE}}
-classpath "%CP%" com.renderx.xep.XSLDriver "-DCONFIG=C:\xep\xep.xml" %*
