Re: Problem generating slides (was Re: The slidesdoctype - XSL-FO output)

Sheesh... answering my own email yet again...

Norm indicated that he has updated the CVS repository on SourceForge.
You can get it from:

by checking out the module "slides" or browsing the repository.

You need to modify line 5 of 'slides.xsl' to be the path to where you
have the DocBook XSL stylesheets... specifically 'html/chunk.xsl'

Note that his 'slides.xsl' stylesheet no longer generates a frameset
by default. If you want frames, you need to indicate that your stylesheet
is 'frames.xsl'.  Also, if you want a header and footer that stay in the same 
place all the time (i.e. at the top and bottom of the window), you can edit
'frames.xsl' and set "multiframe" to "1"... which is VERY cool!

I'm generating it using Saxon 6.2.2 and viewing on Netscape 4.77 on 
Red Hat Linux 7.0. The command was quite simply:

  java com.icl.saxon.StyleSheet file.xml /home/dyork/db/cvs/slides/xsl/slides.xsl
  java com.icl.saxon.StyleSheet file.xml /home/dyork/db/cvs/slides/xsl/frames.xsl

when generating against 'slides.xsl' the resulting start file is 'index.html'
when generating against 'frames.xsl' the resulting start file is 'frames.html'
