I'm sorry I didn't notice this one earlier until I just saw Tony's response.

I don't use the environment variables at all.

In the JADE deliverable you will find the file "xml.dcl".  When you use it,
XML-styled empty tags are detected; if you don't, they aren't.

I hope the example below helps.

T:\FTEMP>type test.xml
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<greeting>hello <test/> world</greeting>

T:\FTEMP>type test.dsl
<!DOCTYPE style-sheet PUBLIC "-//James Clark//DTD DSSSL Style Sheet//EN">

(declare-flow-object-class element
  "UNREGISTERED::James Clark//Flow Object Class::element")

(element greeting
    (make element gi: "p"
(element test
    (make element gi: "i"
        (literal "*")))
;end of file
T:\FTEMP>jade -c p:\jade\jadecurr\catalog -wno-valid -t sgml -f test.err
test.xml >test.htm

T:\FTEMP>type test.err
C:\PROGRA~1\JADE\JADECURR\JADE.EXE:test.xml:2:39:E: end tag for "TEST"
omitted, but its declaration does not permit this
C:\PROGRA~1\JADE\JADECURR\JADE.EXE:test.xml:2:16: start tag was here

T:\FTEMP>jade -c p:\jade\jadecurr\catalog -wno-valid -t sgml -f test.err
p:\jade\jadecurr\xml.dcl test.xml >test.htm

T:\FTEMP>type test.err

T:\FTEMP>type test.htm
>hello <i
> world</p
