Thanks for your replies to all.

I thought of anonymizing the text, but Google returned nor result.

I'm afraid I cannot code, so there is no quick script.

I'll try to find another LaTeX book under a free license that crashes 
with XeLaTeX (I have tried five and they compile fine).

If anyone has a suggestion on a rather large source document or it could 
even provide the quick script to anonymize the text, I'll really 
appreciate it.

Thanks again for your help,
