I recently did this with linuxdoc (with the same caveats), but since
investigating Jade 0.6 I haven't had time to package it in case it's
useful and not too misleading.

I replaced offending SDATA entries in the `general' file with
CDATA ones such as
	<!entity mdash cdata " -- " >
to avoid losing Unicode entities being generated by Jade.  Is there a
better way?
