I remember experiencing the same problem when loading jade's RTF in
WordPerfect. I had (still have, but don't use WP much anymore) a
"clean-jade" macro that reenabled language tools, fiddled with
hyphenation, and deleted headers and footers (which are only interpreted
as intended in MS Word).

I'm revamping language implementation in my own DTD and associated DSSSL
stylesheets and, apart from limitations in dsssl, find that similar
issues affect resulting interpretations in Word, OpenOffice, and

[The dsssl limitation is that, whereas the document language can only be
(effectively) declared at the top of the script, you cannot at that
point read any info from document nodes (even root element) because the
grove tree is not yet available. Consequently, in order to set the
language according to an attribute in the SGML/XML instance and to
accommodate more than one language in the instance, I set the language
for each and every paragraph flow object. This is new and not
extensively tested, but so far OpenOffice seems to deal with it fine,
while AbiWord now totally ignores such language settings and simply uses
its default en_US. I've yet to test it in either WP or MSW.]
