The transcript of this lecture is - or will be - publicly available at this
address. Anyone registered is welcome to contribute to the discussion. 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:
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?
