Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: jadetex suit characters

I am using dsssl 1.71 and jadetex 3.10. I have ♥ ♠ etc
in my sgml source. Jade transforms these into \Character{9825}, etc in the .tex file. Spades and clubs look great, diamonds is a square rather than a rhombus, and hearts does not print at all. The .log file contains "Warning: Unknown character 9825, at 15826". If I replace "\Character{9825}" with "$\heartsuit$" in the tex, I get a nice heart. Any hints about where my toolchain is breaking down?

On the HTML front, the suits appear as "?" with the ISO-8859-1 character set under netscape. With UTF-8 or UTF-7, the suits get printed, but — appears as "?". All suggestions are welcome.
