An alpha version of James Clark's Jade is now available for testing by
qualified individuals.

Jade is an application of DSSSL (ISO/IEC 10179:1996), the
international standard language for specifying processing semantics to
be applied to documents marked up in languages conforming to SGML (ISO
8879:1986).  Jade takes as input an SGML DTD, a document marked up in
the language specified by the DTD, and a DSSSL stylesheet.  It
produces as output an SGML representation of the resulting DSSSL flow
object tree or, alternatively, an RTF file of the formatted document.
For complete and up-to-date information on Jade, consult the Jade home
page at http://www.jclark.com/jade.

The distribution made available with this announcement contains an
alpha version of Jade repackaged for easy installation on Win95 and
Sparc Solaris 2.5 platforms.  For demonstration purposes, it also
contains a recent version of the HTML 3.2 DTD, a sample document
marked up in HTML 3.2, and an HTML 3.2 DSSSL stylesheet.  Complete
source code is available from the same archive.

To obtain the distribution, follow these steps:

1. Log in via anonymous ftp to sunsite.unc.edu (or one of its mirrors).

2. Set "bin" for binary transfer.

3. Change to the directory

   /pub/sun-info/standards/dsssl/jade/1996.08.31

4. Get the files README, DESCR, and HOWTO.

5. Get the appropriate set of binaries.  This will be one of the files
   jade-win.zip, jade-sol.tar.gz, etc.

6. Read DESCR and HOWTO for further directions.
