Jade supports the nsgmls command line options, and from "nsgmls.htm":


      Search directory for files specified in system
      identifiers. Multiple -D options are allowed. See the
      description of the osfile storage manager for more information
      about file searching.

You can also give your files public identifiers and add them to your

Everything you need is in the nsgmls documentation HTML files, plus
there's descriptions of using entities, the catalog format, and nsgmls
command line options in "The Concise <SGML> Companion>" by Neil
Bradley (if you're looking for another book).  "SGML for Dummies" also
describes using entities but is a bit light on the catalog format and
doesn't mention nsgmls command line options.  Personally, I learnt a
lot from "An Author's Guide", but it does predate nsgmls and the SGML
Open catalog format.
