Do you think I can get fuller demonstrations of koi8-r and ucs-2 and
sjis?  I am getting a lot of complaints from Russian users for
instance about difficult using jade/openjade and koi8-r -- if I could
provide and test with some complete examples (including requisite env
vars) then I could test this better.  Both for Debian and for OpenJade
in particular.

Uh.  Ouch.  I take it that '!' is remapped in sjis.  

Are you sure that's referring to Norm's stylesheet properly, e.g.,

  <!ENTITY docbook.dsl PUBLIC
        "-//Norman Walsh//DOCUMENT DocBook HTML Stylesheet//EN" CDATA DSSSL>

?  Perhaps try SDATA or NDATA?  (just a wild guess, shouldn't be necessary).

Yes, that is scheme magic to denote optional arguments.
