We sort of considered creating a batch/cmd file that will take arguments
(jade -c %1 -t %2 -d %3 -f%4 %5 >%6) and execute jade... but this feels
like a kludge, and we want to use this only as a last alternative.

We tried (after receiving this suggestion) to implement the "wrapper" DSSSL
stylesheet that contain the System ID, but we were having trouble getting
it to work.  If we specify the System ID in the actual DSSSL stylesheet,
then it works fine.  However, we end up having to "regenerate" the stylesheet
every time that we need to generate the HTML--not very efficient if
the stylesheet is huge.  So we're still trying to get the "wrapper" 
to work.

Thanks for the suggestions.
