This is why I don't like the db2* scripts, they hide too much from the
end user, and (IMHO) they're not sufficiently customisable.

Take a look at


which has a collection of examples doing what you want using the tools
directly, rather than using any wrapper scripts.

You will probably need to adjust the paths, and the '-c' options to Jade;
you have to make sure that Jade can see CATALOG files that point to the
DocBook DTD that you're using, the catalog for the stylesheets, and the
catalog that came with Jade.
