My word, what a kiuge!  But it works: docbook2tex to create the .tex 
file, sed to translate every instance of \Character{8253} into 
\textinterrobang and then pdfjadetex to turn the modified TeX into a PDF.

But it would be cool if someone, someday, tinkered the right code to 
make the kluge unnecessary.
