As always, I'm a litte off side, but the characteristics work perfectly
outputting to the fot backend, which is what I use as input for my fot2pdf
formatter. This formatter does indeed use these characteristics and heeds
them like expected.

So if it does not work in the other backends, one should take a look at
them; the DSSSL part of JADE itself isn't to blame...
