I'd welcome any corrections [I have deliberately simplified XML in places]. [There were two server-side breaks in transmission but I hope that anyone who 'attended' was able to get all the material. The 26 slides are also available at: http://www.vsms.nottingham.ac.uk/vsms/talks/chemwebvei/001.html which is the TOC. [The slides are deliberately not interlinked because of the technology.] If you'd like to use material from these please let me know. In passing I prepared the slides using conventional HTML editing tools (Netscape). I kept thinking how it would have been preferable to use XML for this and I think I was close to the break-even point for tooling up and doing it in Java/XML. This would have solved renumbering problems, allowed redesigned layouts to be transmitted to every slide, etc. I would have still output the actual slides in HTML. I am a believer in using HTML for presentations (since I feel it's more flexible/portable/re-usable than other approaches). If other people feel the same way, perhaps we could create a collaborative approach to XML/HTML-slide generation? P.
