Jade is not quite similar. It uses DSSSL not XSL-FO. DSSSL is a
predecessor of XSL-FO, and applies to SGML files not XML
files. Docbook was one of the few projects that had extensive public
DSSSL stylesheets. Docbook SGML, its stylesheets and JadeTeX were used
a lot in the late 90s. JadeTeX is a so-called backend to Jade, using
TeX for typesetting. Different from FOP, Jade did not do the
typesetting itself.
