| Does Jade, usingn the RTF backend, process SHORTREF character mapping?

| way?  I used to be able to use &#TAB; but it ceased working.

One or the other of us is confused.  My understanding (or
rather, recollection) of shortref mapping is that it's an input
markup shortcut.  Any shortref characters in your input instance
are normalized away by the parser.
