Thanks Tony.

According to the Openjade documentation, the only environment
variable that can be used with Openjade is SP_ENCODING.
And it does not seem that I have to change the SGML declaration, the
standatd one being OK.

I had some difficulties to have an SGML example file and to get some
precison upon the coding used. It is sjis in both in and output files.

Anyway, if I have good results with ucs-2 unicode and koi8-r too, but
then, Openjade finds a lot of non-sgml characters, which seems normal.
But as the characters are output without modification, the result is good.

With, sjis, I get good results too, but Openjade complains upon errors
in the stylesheet :

openjade:/xo/.../sgml/sgml.dsl:71:44:E:invalid character after '#'
(define (strip str #!optional (stripchars '(#\space #\&#RE #\U-0009)))
(strip is one Norman Walsh's function)
I supposec that this a result of the stylesheet being parsed using
I would be happy to get rid of this error, because I am afraid it will
prevent the function to work, if needed.
