Subject: RE: [docbook] Re: [docbook-apps] slides: how to balancepresentation and content

Most of control of specific output characteristics is done with processing instructions in DocBook.  This allows specifics for different outputs to be specified (using dbfo and dbhtml type identifiers within the processing instructions).   I guess this is part of the philosophy of trying to separate the content from the presentation.  You could add your own dbslide PIs.  This might help reduce the load on the role attribute.

Best Regards,

I will have a look, thanks.
I used a stylesheet I wrote about two years ago, and which is now part 
of the docbook-xsl repository, albeit not (yet) in a package.
As time permits I'm going to improve it, if possible (I already patched 
S5 quite a bit, as its use of 'innerHTML' wasn't compatible with my use 
of XHTML (required to handle MathML)...

As I mentioned, I would be interested in improving the DB vocabulary 
itself to allow support for more powerful features in the output media. 
It seems the 'role' attribute isn't the right way to move forward...
