No, DocBook will generate nothing. It is a DTD, so you need SGML
processing tools. And Jade does not have a texinfo backend, sorry.
If you ask me, I think the RMS is on the wrong path with texinfo.
SGML is the whisper of the future. Maybe you want to ask him if they
dont want to donate a texinfo backend to jade dsssl engine?
However, I dont know how texinfo looks like. If it uses standard
markup, you may come around using a small converter, but it will
never be optimal.
