Jade is an implementation of the DSSSL style language. For general information about DSSSL, see James Clark's DSSSL page. This is part of the Cygnus DocBook tools.
jade-1.2.1: description + notes
Jade includes the following components:
- An abstract interface to groves. This is designed to be implementable on top of a database, in addition to simple in-memory implementations.
- An in-memory implementation of this interface built with SP.
- A style engine that implements the DSSSL style language.
- A command-line application, jade, that combines the style engine with the spgrove grove interface and five backends:
- A backend that generates an XML representation of the flow object tree.
- A backend that generates RTF. This has been tested with Microsoft Word 97 and Microsoft's free Word Viewer 97.
- A backend that generates TeX.
- A backend that generates MIF.
- A backend that generates SGML. This is used in conjunction with non-standard flow object classes to generate SGML, thus allowing Jade to be used for SGML transformations.
