The presentation will describe the DocBook slides infrastructure,
how it can be used to automatically import content from other XML
documents to keep slides up to date. I will examine the FreeBSD
doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/slides implementation that pulls in content
from the release notes, includes file for the most recent releases
of FreeBSD, etc.
The presentation will also deal with XSL-FO processors. The open
source PassiveTeX is not a viable platform for producing high
quality PDF slides because of the lack of support for background
images in flow object regions. Therefore I will examine other Java
based open source solutions, and the commercial Java based XSL-FO
processors that can produce very high quality slides.
