Hello,

  The Ruby Slide Show (S9) gem that lets you create slide shows and
author slides in plain text using a wiki-style markup language that's
easy-to-write and easy-to-read now includes (experimental) support for
S5 slide shows.

  To create a S5 slide show instead of a FullerScreen slide show just
flip the s5 switch. Example:

   slideshow -s5 microformats

   That's it. The slideshow (S9) gem will create a web page
(microformats.html), a style sheet (microformats.css) and a
"loss-free" gradient theme using vector graphics (microformats.svg)
plus copy the S5 machinery into the s5 subfolder (that you can share
between all your slide shows).

   You can find some S9 generated S5 samples online:

   o Microformats - Add Semantics to Your Web Site  @

   o Facebook Stats, Numbers & More @
http://slideshow.rubyforge.org/s5/facebook.html
   o Merb - All You Need, None You Don't @
http://slideshow.rubyforge.org/s5/merb.html

   (Note, S5 slide shows include a hidden control bar. Scroll to the
lower right corner to make the jump box, outline toggle button and
more show up).

   If you're curious you can find the plain-text sources online @

   Questions and comments welcome. Enjoy.

   Cheers.

PS: S9 Tip of the Day: Replace .html with .svg to check your
background gradient theme. Try
