1) If there is a " " in index term like:
the output HTML will include "A B". This bug affects
at least Chinese.
2) If index is inside "<part>...</part>", the link "Prev" at the
head of doc-index.html will point to doc-index.html itself
(This bug may concerts DSSSL stylesheet). See:
Chaotic bookmarks in PDF (Error ancestor-descendant relationship.
This bug may also concerts DSSSL stylesheet):
Chapter 1 Introduction
1.1 Developing on FreeBSD
1.2 The BSD Vision
1.3 Architectural Guidelines
1.4 The Layout of /usr/src
NOTE: PDFs on ftp.freebsd.org are built with Jade, not OpenJade.
In this case, no bookmark is properly generated at all.
1) OpenJade mis-marks some languages other than Japanese with
Japanese code page ("\fcharset128").
2) OpenJade takes it for granted to use the font "WingDings"
of Microsoft Windows (hard coded) for the numeric callouts
circled 1, circled 2, ..., which results in OpenOffice's
failure to display callouts without the font "WingDings".
3) OpenJade cannot embed images into RTF, though it is easy.
4.For all output formats, OpenJade lacks enough support for all
character sets covered by Unicode. This bug has affected Greek
FreeBSD documents, though ISO 8859-7 is a simple character set.
Above all, Jade/OpenJade is no longer an active/vivid project.
Even Jade's original creator, James Clark, has moved his interests
onto other issues. We can see "James Clark" on XSLT/XPath
