Did you search the archives of this list, or of one of the DocBook lists?
If you only searched the archives for this list (techwr-l), you might want
to send this query to the docbook-apps (docbook-apps -at- lists -dot- oasis-open -dot- org)
mailing list. You can reach the archives for that list at http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/docbook/.
We never used Jade in our DocBook tool chain - we used Xalan and Saxon to
get HTML (and Epic's print publisher to get to PDF) and didn't have much
trouble with them. But if you're committed to Jade, I can't be much help
