----------------------------------------------------------------- I can now confirm that the Jadetex package, an implementation of the TeX skeleton produced by "jade -t tex", processes Jon Bosak's 10_mail and 20_tsmt examples more or less correctly. It has problems with the tables in 21_shaks file at present. I am trying to get to grips with tables. I would like to stress that this Jadetex set of macros is not intended as a final solution. It is built on top of LaTeX, for speed of development, and to test the relationship between DSSSL and TeX. When it is clear what to do, it would be sensible to put more intelligence into the Jade TeX backend itself, and to rewrite the TeX macros. If anyone wants to dive into this anyway, great! Any comments very welcome. Jadetex can be found on CTAN in macros/jadetex. Coming soon - implementation of math :-} Sebastian Rahtz [**Note: see Announcement from Jon Bosak for an expanded collection of simple tutorial materials for DSSSL (Document Style Semantics and Specification Language, ISO/IEC 10179) -rcc]
