MediaWiki has a maximum article size, set by default to 2Mb 
($wgMaxArticleSize), although there's no technical reason to not have it 
set to an higher value. I don't see how a 100Kb page would give problems 
with any modern browser.
Perhaps you could point us to such problematic page, or otherwise 
describe how is it broken?
