This is a known limitation of DOM.
Use SAX, or increase your heap size.

In many cases the simplest thing to do is just write the XML document text without ever creating a Document or a SAX event. Just make sure the structure of your program reflects the hierarchy you are trying to build in the document.

Yes, that would be exact my suggestion too.
Do NOT forget xml is just a text file which follow certain rules. As long as you know what you are doing, then you can do it!!!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
