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


Thanks enormously for taking the time to set this all up. Although I
haven't yet had the chance to look at it, I'm expecting that it will be
incredibly useful.

  DY> As you will see, the presentation is about "maximizing your use of CVS"

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

  DY>   ns4  (since I use Netscape 4)
  DY>   multiframe

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

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

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

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