Hi all,

I just subscribed to this list, I hope you will not flame me for asking too
simple questions. I can't find the solution myself.

I am to prepare some kind of presentation for students of linguistics. I
will create a DTD, then XML document and then I want to generate text, HTML,
RTF, TeX, PDF and postscript from it. All must be done with free software.

I want to use Jade for XML to RTF conversion. I tried both Jade and
OpenJade, but the result is the same - I get errors and the RTF file has no
formatting. I paste my test XML file, DSSSL, error log, batch file with
commands I use and generated RTF, so you can see my problem.
Please help, I will not find solution quickly enough, error messages do not
tell me anything. They claim not being able to find the files, but the files
are there.

Can anybody send me simple XML and DSSSL files that work?
