Title Page with a Table

I'm still trying to devfelop a title page.  At trhe suggestion of
Lassi.Turra@xxxxxxx, I'm using a table to handle proper positioning.  I
hadn't even considered that, but it seemed such a simple and logical
choice for positioning the fixed information properly.

I created a small SGM table and used Jade to produce and RTF using a
modifed version the the DOCBOOK DSL.  The table doesn't appear as it was
supposed to.  Text I specified as centered isn't, row heights aren't
used.  I end up with a table having 6 single line rows. Text entities
are properly handled.

I have made no changes to the DSL with regard to table so I assume it
will work properly.  Am I missing something? (obviously!)  Perhaps
someone has an example of a title page using fixed positioning?

Thanks for any help.

the SGM fragment being used

<table frame="all">
<tgroup cols="1" colsep="1" rowsep="1">
<colspec colwidth="624*">
