Thanks Jorge. I was just about to reply!

The base stylesheets can and should stay the same - remain as they
are packaged with the distribution. I wrote a very simple "ldp.dsl"
stylesheet only for the purpose of *extending and overriding some
default values*.

This was absolutely the correct thing to do.

Or I; or see:  http://metalab.unc.edu/gferg/ldp/ldp.dssl

This is based on an extended stylesheet that Conectiva provides
with its distribution. I then simply reference this stylesheet
(rather than the provided default) from the jade command line:

    % jade -t sgml -i html -d <pth>/ldp.dsl#html <howto>.sgml
