 No.  DocBook/SGML+Jade+Norm Walsh's DSSSL Stylesheets supports
 encodings of Asian Languages (including Big5) natively (FreeBSD
 Doc Team uses them with no problem for a long time).  I am working
 on Japanese translation of the guide now and trying to add
 a customized DSSSL stylesheets framework to make the localization
 easier.  The current implementation of my*.dsl and {sgml,guide}.mk
 is too straightforward to do so.
