Compare HarryT's Dickens to what you find on Gutenberg.
Another thing to note is that Gutenberg's EPUB, etc. formats are all auto-generated from the HTML version... while their script generally does a very good job (sometimes better than Calibre, in my opinion), many of the EPUBs could still use some hand editing: replacement of rescaled images with higher quality copies, stylesheet tweaking (H2 doesn't need to generate a page break when in an EPUB), separation of sections into individual files etc.
