And I have a related (or possibly the same) question; I'm not sure if
it's my ignorance of SGML, DSSSL, or Jade that is confusing me, but ....

I have a "document" which involves a non-standard SGML declaration (a
"variant concrete syntax" if I have the terminology correct), a DTD, and
a document instance, all of which I want to process with a DSSSL
stylesheet using Jade.  While it's straightforward enough to tell Jade
what the stylesheet is, and for the document instance itself to specify
the DTD, I have been unable to persuade either the document instance,
the DTD, or Jade to apply the variant concrete syntax to the particular

I *have* been able to tell Jade to use the variant syntax *globally* --
but that has undesired side effects.

Nor have I been able to determine a way to specify a default DSSSL
specification for the particular instance, which would be convenient --
fortunately, "make" lets me apply the appropriate .dsl files fairly
easily, so that's a minor curiosity, rather than a burning question.
But a way to associate the variant concrete syntax with either the DTD,
the stylesheet, or the particular invocation of Jade would be very

My apologies if this is either too elementary or directed to the wrong
place; despite a concerted attempt to Read The Fine Manual, I'm still
not sure where I should be trying to solve this one.
