With an extension. Modify the Xalan Redirect extension element to write
contents into a ByteArray and to return the number of bits used by the
redirected output. Then generate each deck into a variable and test it's
size with the extension. This works, but slows things down quite
considerably. If your WML output doesn't vary a lot or is mostly text, you
could just approximate the deck size by using string-length() and
basically... make a wild quess :)

There are better solutions, but hope this helps,
