Consider this, I guess, an OpenJade feature request.  Anyone have any
more knowledge of this?

Yes. I've forgotten the details, but apparently Jade would have to
generate some particular bit of RTF that the current backend doesn't
support. I have a hazy recollection that the problem involves hidden
text or nested paragraphs or some combination of the two.
