  Description     : A simple HTML-based presentation system

>From the S5 website:

 S5: A Simple Standards-Based Slide Show System

 S5 is a slide show format based entirely on XHTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
 With one file, you can run a complete slide show and have a
 printer-friendly version as well. The markup used for the slides is
 very simple, highly semantic, and completely accessible. Anyone with
 even a smidgen of familiarity with HTML or XHTML can look at the markup
 and figure out how to adapt it to their particular needs. Anyone
 familiar with CSS can create their own slide show theme. It's totally
 simple, and it's totally standards-driven.

I've used this system for many presentations in several courses taught
at the University of Sofia and at several FOSS conferences in Bulgaria.
I'm also the maintainer of the FreeBSD port of s5, where I added
a simple shell script for easier creation of new presentations.

And yes, I know that none of JavaScript, HTML, and CSS are commonly
considered programming languages, but somehow it feels better than just
putting "none" :)
