Subject: Re: [docbook] Slides+Book

Yes, I have done that, using XSLT to generate docbook slide 
elements.  Unfortunately, I did it for a client, so I can't give 
you the code.  It was pretty specialized to his requirements 
anyway, so I don't know how useful it would be.

He set role="slides" on sections that he wanted included in a 
slide set.  The match on the docbook root element generated the 
main slides element, then generated a title page, table of 
contents, and then applied templates. Only sections with 
role="slides" were processed, and only up to a certain depth. 
There was also a role="noslides" to turn off individual sections. 
Each section created a foil element, and the content of the 
section was copied as the slide content.  Subsections became 
separate slides, etc.  The whole stylesheet was under 150 lines.
