NW>/ Gary Stainburn <gary.stainburn@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> was heard to say:
NW>| 1) the revision details get rendered without spaces (even if I put spaces inside the tags).
NW>| <revnumber>1.0</revnumber><date>5 November 1999</date>
NW>| becomes
NW>| Revision 1.05 November 1999
NW>I think this is a JadeTeX table handling bug. I don't know what
NW>to do about it.

I (currently) know as little about Jade/JadeTeX as I do about dsssl, but I'll see what I can see.  Could you suggest a better place to ask for help?

NW>| 2) The first page of <preface>, <chapter>, and <appendix>'s (and possible <Toc> but that's an odd numbered page anyway) ALWAYS has the header and footer right justified as though it was an even page.
NW>Umm. Hmm. Anyone else have this problem?

I'd be interested to hear, and if so, how they got round it.

NW>| 3)  Footnotes are placed at the end of chapters and not at the foot of the page.
NW>Run Jade with the -V tex-backend and -V bop-footnotes options, or put
NW>definitions in a custom stylesheet for them. Does that help?

Ditto on point 1 again here.  I simply run the scripts db2pdf and db2ps that came with the rpms.  I'll have a look at what they do and how they do it.  

Thanks Norm.

B.T.W., I love Docbook TDG and it's on my Amazon wish list for when the boss releases the purse strings.
