Adam Harris was kind enough to demo jadetex for me.  The fidelity relative
to RTF turned out to be poor for my funky stylesheet.  Please don't take
that as an authoritative critique, because I suspect that jadetex works fine
for many, if not most, documents.  MIF was good, but I could never get the
MIF backend to compile on HP-UX.  Using jade/RTF and the Windows server also
presents the side benefit of being able to use the Office97 DOM to enhance
the output.
