I tried comparing RACC to Eilertech.com.  Once I filtered out pictures 
from the Eilertech score, I got 12 MB.  So, I might have to ask how good 
RACC's compression algorithm is, but 30 MB is still impressive.

However, you probably want to impress the general public instead of 
people who build web sites.  Word count would probably do that.  For 
comparison, the Harry Potter series has about one million words.  That 
probably makes it 10 MB when you include formatting.
