Description of problem:
Any attempt to process a docbook document containing &thgr; leads to
the underlined text "texttheta" appearing in the output. However &THgr; (an
uppercase text theta) works fine.
Splitting the command into its consituent parts yields the error message "The
Unicode package knows about symbol texttheta, but the font package is not
loaded". Given that &THgr; works I have reason to doubt the accuracy of this
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a docbook file involving &thgr; (or use my theta.xml from the URL above)
Actual Results: The page viewed contains the underlined text "thesttheta"
followed by an uppercase text theta.
Expected Results: The page should display a lowercase text theta followed by an
uppercase text theta.
$ docbook2tex theta.xml
Using catalogs: /etc/sgml/xml-docbook-4.1.2-1.0-8.cat
Using stylesheet: /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.9/docbook-utils-a4.dsl#print
Working on: /home/rjd4/public_html/bugs/db1/theta.xml
$ jadetex theta

No file theta.aux.
The Unicode package knows about symbol texttheta, but the font package is not loaded
[1.0.56] (theta.aux) )
Output written on theta.dvi (1 page, 484 bytes).
Transcript written on theta.log.
The font package it's talking about is 'lucidabr', and it really isn't loaded.
But loading it seem to cause other problem. The easy work-around is to just
use math mode when displaying that character. I'll do that in the next
Fixed in jadetex-3.12-4.
