I agree, jade is not the way to go.

Philip, I just found a msg from you to the developer at db2latex from mid 2005--did anyone ever respond?

I've looked into the docbook (xsl) => pdf thing several times over the years and still believe the best method is not to reinvent the wheel but use Professor Knuth's wonderful TeX for the actual typesetting.  That means translation of docbook eventually into TeX (or LaTeX), then pdf.

Besides db2latex there is also a docbook (xsl) => ConTeXt (which is a set of macros on top of TeX; it is seriously maintained) => pdf system I'm looking into.

And what is the current method you are using?
