I did not see Mulberry's refcard, but I hacked a Q&D stylesheet in
DSSSL, which gives a useable (if not decent) result.  Please find it

Note: processing to postscript via jadetex does not appear to work for
me, it insists on declaring a portrait paper for the landcape layout.
Use pdfjadetex, and then convert to postscript if needed.
