Hmm I was surprised by the figures you have given,
We are interested by the size of the content to chew.

So I have done a simple html2text conversion on web apps 1.0 and took  
the text version for HTML 4.01 and HTML DOM Level 2

Pages printed
HTML 4.01             375
HTML DOM Level 2      171      total     546
Web Apps 1.0          260

Word Counts
HTML 4.01         104.567
HTML DOM Level 2   27.068      total 131.635
Web Apps 1.0      160.516


=> so Web Apps 1.0 is half in printed pages but with more words,  
which means a lot more dense to read.

What we call in France, un "far breton".  *burp* ;)
