When will you be making db108b7 available?  I assume the change for it
is in DBGRAPH.DSL?  What changes the scaling like that?  Modifying the
Scale/max-width/max-height didn't seem to do anything.

I've used both rtf and rtf-95, mostly rtf-95 since I was using Word95. 
I found no differences with the options with regard to Word, but I
wasn't looking for them either.  WordPerfect, on the other hand, has
some significant differences in its implementation of RTF that are not
handled well by either Jade option.  I don't know who's implmentation
deviates most from the RTF "standard".  Based on previous experience
with MS-flavored "standards", I suspect them to be the culprit -- IMO. 
I have significant concerns about their implmentation of XML/XSL for the
same reason.

Has anyone else made any modifications to the Jade backend processing to
support their particular application?  I would consider doing so if it's
