Actually I get

but possibly I just need to tell jade somewhere about these names, but
your message told me that my assumption was wrong:

me> it would be sufficient to be able to enter the unicode
me> characters by number, but I need to get them to be allowed first, I assume.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I thought the error message in the subject line meant that I couldn't
access unicode characters at all without changing the SGML declaration,
but of course (now you point it out) You can access them at the dsssl
level without  generating explicit references to 16bit characters
in the SGML parse. Jade does know the name \U-3008 and that all works
so I'm happy (for now:-).

The other route via SGMLDECL would also, I am sure, work if I knew what
declaration to give. I managed to change the declaration, but then the
stylesheet wouldn't parse:-) Still I think I'll keep with the default
declaration for now.
