I have been fighting with trying to get your sample built on my system. 
The end point for me seems to be that in order to use your faq.dsl I 
need docbook DTD 4.2. RedHat 7.2 has  Docbook 3.0 through 4.1 but  4.1 
just does not cut it.

jade:../faq.dsl:50:24:E: reference to undefined variable 

The sgml tools  site  has only 3.0/2

So I feel very THICK  and ned some enlightenment  on what direction to 
take either.

1) It seems pointless to rely on something (docBook 4.2 DTD) that is 
difficult to get, so no one will use it so, no one will maintain the FAQ.

2) I am THICK and I it will be quickly apparent what I should do once I 
have more informatioin.
