Everything what you need is to set environment variable SP_ENCODING to
value ISO-8859-2. Then you can process files which contain ISO-8859-2
characters by Jade and nsgmls.

IMHO it is better to use XML version of DocBook, because XML is able to
carry encoding information in the body of file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-2"?>
<!DOCTYPE book 

If you than set SP_ENCODING to XML, Jade and nsgmls will automatically
switch to encoding specified in XML declaration.
