You are welcome... and I hope it is helpful.

The whole reason I used DocBook for this presentation was that I got really
sick of using StarOffice (and before that Applixware) for slides, and I
just did not feel like learning how to use MagicPoint (which numerous 
friends/colleagues in the Linux/open source world had suggested).
So since I already do so much with DocBook, and since Norm had a Slides
doctype, I just had to check it out... and it wasn't that hard to figure
out once I started working with it.  

I used 'xsltproc' to generate this particular set of slides, but I also had
previously used Xalan and Saxon to generate slides.


P.S. FYI, Norm's tutorials show other examples at:


His "Introducing DocBook" one also shows what the NavBar should look like with
collapsing sections in the frames view:
