Some time ago, while learning SGML, I have written an SGML declaration
for SGML documents that allows the use of russian alphabet (in koi8-r
encoding, rfc1489) both in document content and markup (OminMark
whitepaper was very helpful).  This declaration uses (in both CHARSET

    BASESET  "ISO 646-1983//CHARSET
	      International Reference Version (IRV)//ESC 2/5 4/0"

and then in DESCSET it maps chars from koi8-r to "a character number
in the universal character set" (to quote the SP documentation).

		 -- ....... --
                 192  1 1102 -- CYRILLIC SMALL LETTER YU --
                 193  1 1072 -- CYRILLIC SMALL LETTER A --
		 -- etc ... --


    $ nsgmls koi8r.dcl test.sgml

parses the document without any errors.

Now I try to write a DSSSL style sheet for a document that uses my
declaration and use both russian element names and russian content.

When I run jade

    $ jade -t fot -d test.dsl koi8r.dcl test.sgml

Jade emits an error messages like:

    jade:test.sgml:4:10:E: non SGML character number 225

for every russian letter in my document content.  It gives no errors
for russian letters in element names in my document and corresponding
element rules in my style sheet.  And it produces correct fot dump.

I reread clause 7.1 of DSSSL standard and Jade/SP documentation
several times. I tried specifying baseset-encoding and standard-chars
in my style sheet but that was of no avail.

Any help or pointers to further (online) reading are greatly
appreciated.  If someone is willing to help, I have put complete
minimal test case to


Thanks in advance.
