I have just changed jadetex again, and made some important changes to
make sure labels and links work properly. If you look at

you can see the result. This is the DSSSL spec transformed to TeX, and
run through pdftex, which generates PDF output instead of TeX's
original .dvi form. This demonstrates that:

 a) the TeX output for straightforward text is about right (yes there
    are problems still...)
 b) color works properly
 c) linking translates properly to PDF links (see p. 7 for first examples)
 d) pdftex makes a very pleasant working environment

     sgml ----> TeX   --------> PDF --------> eyes
          jade         pdftex       acroread
    which cuts out the traditional TeX driver processing, Acrobat
    Distiller, and what have you
Sorry, i didn't optimize the PDF
