yes. I am fairly sure I tried that, and come to grief for 
some reason.

probably this was my cause for grief :-}

better hack it in Jade's TeXFOTBuilder.cxx, to be honest,
in "TeXFOTBuilder::characters". My memory is declining with old age
--- didn't someone make this patch last year? I don't have a current
Jade source on this box

I should say that the chances of my doing any real work on JadeTeX are 
pretty remote. If Joerg, Mattthias or anyone wants to take over the
maintenance, I'd be more than happy to relinquish control.
