I use it for all my "private" documentation and "try" to use it for 
various inhouse documentation and specifications at your company.

Not really :(
I acknowledge that jadetex is a quick hack of Sebastian Rahtz (and maybe
others) and don't blame him for not trying to enhance jadetex. AFAIK he
repeatedly said, that it's at least very difficult to enhance jadetex
to fulfill the requirements for creating professional output.

> Do you use something else?

Not yet.
I still have to investigate the possibilities of xmltex and PassiveTeX
and hope to get some insight into these at TUG 2000 (Oxford, UK) later 
this summer.

> Did you think in developing something else?

Not enough time, not enough skills.
I would really appreciate the development of some alternative...
