Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: FYI - another example of DocBook XML Slides online

FYI, I'm giving a presentation tomorrow at the Ottawa Linux Symposium
(http://www.linuxsymposium.org/ ) where all my slides were generated using
DocBook XML and Norm's Slides 2.0a doctype.  If you want to see the presentation
and the XML code, you can view the preso at:


and the DocBook XML at:


As you will see, the presentation is about "maximizing your use of CVS"
(for newbies, that is the CVS used for version control -
http://www.cvshome.org/ )

I personally like the frames view:


You'll note that I went into frames.xsl and set two parameters to "1":

  ns4  (since I use Netscape 4)

"multiframe" is what gives you the nice border on the top and bottom of all
the slides (after the first slide) as you go through the preso. Setting
"ns4" was supposed to, I thought,  give me a navbar that has sections
that collapse, but it doesn't work.

I also modified "slides.css" to use the fonts that I wanted and give me the
orange borders.

Anyway, it is out there for anyone interested in learning more.

Comments/feedback/suggestions are welcome.  (Including comments about
the CVS preso :-)
