The feature element type form is supported in the current development
code. (See 7.1.1 in the DSSSL standard.)

The scroll, multi-mode, link, marginalia flow objects are all specified to
require the online feature (see 12.6.28). To be DSSSL-comforming, you
should enable them in the style-sheet. However, to be backwards
compatible, OpenJade does nt complain for undeclared features if the
feature element is specified (unless the -s (strict) flag is given on the
command line). The exception is when a particular back-end doesn't support
a feature which gets implicitly declared. Then, OpenJade gives the
message. Actually, there was a but in the RTF back-end was that what you
used?), so it was not declared to support the online feature. This is now

I cant' reproduce this. Can you (the one who reported the bug:-) give a
complete example which shows this, please.

If it does, ofcourse yes.
