Thanks.  That fixed that problem.  The problem with indexterm tags in  
titles and tables turns out to be a problem in jadetex itself.  I may  
have a partial workaround that involves shoving the TeX node into the  
output stream right before the table, but I'm still trying to work the  
bugs out to make it usable.

I just ran into one more nasty bug.  When I create a table, the column  
width is always width/n where n is the number of columns.  That works  
fine as long as all of the columns contain wrappable text.  When you  
have a table of things like enumerations and their meanings, though,  
you get some really raw-looking  output.  I often end up with the text  
of the second column sticking out of the side of the table, or worse,  
the text of the first column overflowing into (read "on top of") the  
second.  Blech.

The obvious solution is to have the column width set to the width of  
the widest hbox that occurs within it.  Does anyone know of a way (with  
DocBook DSSSL) to get JadeTeX to get variable column width?
