The Slides doctype is a DocBookCustomization for making slide presentations, created by NormanWalsh. The latest released version is 3.4.0 (from April 28, 2005), and it includes a DTD and a RELAX NG schema as well as stylesheets (now somewhat obsolete) and support files. It is available in the files section of the DocBookProject.

The latest Slides stylesheets are available as part of the regular Docbook XSL releases.


Demo slides are available in the slides-demo package from the DocBookProject. The package currently contains examples of HTML output only. If you want to see examples of PDF output, be sure to stop by the presentations section at and download the PDF version of the most recent presentations given by NormanWalsh.
