Yes, but you have to use DTDDECL and associate the decls with public
identifiers.  Jade seems to use SGMLDECL in favor of DTDDECL (if both
apply) even if DTDDECL occurs in a catalog earlier in the path. This
creates real havoc, but I haven't gone to read the SGML Open document
to see if this is expected behavior.

Here's a snippet of (one of) my catalog files:

DTDDECL "-//James Clark//DTD DSSSL Flow Object Tree//EN" "Jade/jade.dcl"
DTDDECL "ISO/IEC 10179:1996//DTD DSSSL Architecture//EN" "Jade/jade.dcl"
DTDDECL "-//James Clark//DTD DSSSL Style Sheet//EN"      "Jade/jade.dcl"
DTDDECL "-//Davenport//DTD DocBook V3.0//EN" "Davenport/decls/3.0/docbook.dcl"

and this works for me.
