Some DSSSL questions

I have some questions regarding Jade and DSSSL.

1) The DSSSL documentation project and DSSSL tutorials proved very
useful. However, I can't find documentation anywhere about the various
DSSSL functions, such as (current-node), (parent), (element ...),
(make ...), etc. Where can I find that?

2) I can't get catalogs to work. I want to generate different HTML
output from a single source. I want several DSSSL stylesheets, say
"mydtd-html2.dsl" and "mydtd-html32.dsl". I then want to call jade
with one catalog to generate the appropriate output, e.g. call "jade
-c catalog-html2" to generate the HTML 2 version. How should such a
catalog look like, roughly?

3) I want to define a <LITERAL>-Tag, whose output is to be copied
directly into the HTML output. This is meant for embedding HTML for
those situations where I can't describe the contents in my own DTDs.
The <LITERAL> contents may not be interpreted by DSSSL, since it will
contain Tags that are not in my DTDs. What is the correct declaration?
Or do I have to precess <LITERAL> differently in the DSSSL-scripts?

Thanks a lot,
Daniel Vogelheim
