Sure there is, HTML4 includes all of Unicode, thus also the dotless-i.
They gave up assigning names to them after latin1, but numerical
references are in the standard also (decimal and hex).

I created a simple docbook document on my computer with ı and
ran openjade over and in the output file it is converted to ı.
Openjade knows how to generate valid character references. The input
file is attached, I compiled it with the command:

openjade -V draft-mode -wall -wno-unused-param -wno-empty -i output-html -t 
sgml /tmp/a.sgml

For dsl file just copy the stylesheet.dsl file in the postgresql source

Why it doesn't work in the current docs I don't know, but I think we can
rule out limitations of HTML or Docbook.

Have a nice day,
