     I had the same need, on a large scale; I needed to generate tens of 
     thousands of rtf files from single large chunks of sgml. Originally I 
     split the sgml into tiny pieces and ran jade on each piece, but the 
     per-file startup time made this very slow. I think this was because 
     our dtd is very big; using xml might have helped this, but the 'xml 
     dtd' needed for each file would still be pretty big...
     Anyways, what I'm doing now, and which is much faster, is running jade 
     on the big chunk of sgml, converting it to rtf with little magic tags 
     inside, and then running a fast scanner on the big rtf file to break 
     it up into little rtf files based on the magic tags. This is sort of a 
     flaky scheme, made even more so by the fact that I don't know rtf, but 
     it works.
