DocBook Slides, XSLT, and XSL-FO

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.
