My document is essentially all HTML tables.  I use DSSSL code borrowed from
Jon Bozak's HTML3.2 stylesheet and Chris Maden's HTML4 table stylesheet.
Aside from the left page margin being off and auto-column-width not working,
Jade with the MIF backend renders the tables correctly, including background
color and framing.  I fix my columns with <COL WIDTH=nn%>, which I believe
is an HTML4 enhancement, in order to avoid the error messages from the MIF
backend.  I attempted to insert a bitmap of our company logo, but it
appeared with the wrong aspect ratio in FrameMaker, even though it looked
okay in the RTF version.  So I don't know about image support.
