RE: VMs: truncated repeating sequences

Here's an experiment - I don't know if it would be
easy to do or not.
Take a longish piece of plain text (language
doesn't really matter).
Make the vocabulary and assign every word a number
starting at 1. Alphabetical order would be fine.
Replace each word by its number and each space
by a dot.

Repeat the test you've done on the VMs text.
I wonder how it would look. I sort of expect 
something similar to your tables.

To make it nicer, one could also use Roman
numerals instead of arabic ones, although that
is probably a lot trickier to do (would require
some code I guess).
