Followup (after I spent some time working with this over the Christmas
holidays); Norman's pointer appears to have answered my question without
solving my problem (which is, of course, not his fault).  

	I have now come to believe that there is no way to specify an
SGML entity which will process through Jade to the RTF backend and
result in a glyph not in the "standard" font (e.g. a lowercase alpha,
&agr; or α).  I also don't believe it's a SGML/DSSSL/JADE problem
-- I think the limitation is in the RTF/MS Word end of things.  

	Sigh.  Unfortunately, I need to deliver MS Word documents for at
least one of the projects involved, so even if JadeTeX addresses this
issue (a subject which I have not investigated yet), it doesn't solve
the problem.

Thank you; it looks like one or more of these should solve my problem.
Apparently I didn't look carefully enough at the documentation, as I
think this site was mentioned.  Mea culpa.

/ MARK.WROTH@xxxxxxxxxxx (Wroth, Mark) was heard to say:
| Has anyone accumulated a set of the entity files used by DocBook with
| the Unicode representations used by Jade?  The pointer in the DocBook
| dsssl script installation package leads to definitions of the form
| "[aacute]", which is appropriate in general, but I was not able to
| an equivalent which is already set up for Jade.  

Rick Jelliffe and Sebastian Rahtz have both worked on this. See
