I had a first look, and am wondering.  There are 3 sets of
column-styles, and jade uses the oldest one.  OTOH openjade refuses to
process Norm's stylesheets - and I it similarly barfs on my stylesheet

$ openjade -t tex -d /usr/lib/sgml/stylesheet/dsssl/docbook/nwalsh/print/docbook.dsl sample-tbl.docbook 
openjade:/usr/lib/sgml/stylesheet/dsssl/docbook/nwalsh/print/dbtable.dsl:404:5:E: flow object not accepted by port; only table-column flow objects followed by table-row or table-cell flow objects allowd
$ openjade -v
openjade:I: "OpenJade" version "1.4devel"
openjade:I: "OpenSP" version "1.5pre5"

Is openjade usable at all ?  Is it just 1.4devel that is not
stabilized enough, and 1.3 should be used ?

It is also much MUCH slower than jade at processing documents :(
