I have been pounding my head against the wall trying to go through TeX to
get Postscript output. Tried importing RTF into Applix Words and things
look _much_ better. jade/docbook ran quietly to produce RTF, and Applix
read the file without complaint, where instead TeX spews massive amounts
of warnings and errors and eventually aborts. I'm pretty sure I'm going to
give up on TeX and go with RTF->Words->Postscript, spending a little while
with each file inside Words cleaning things up. The html output can be
used without any mods.

I'm back to being optimistic :)
