Hello,

the slide layer on top of docbook is great but I'm
frustrated by one missing feature I appreciated in
slitex (the "layer" devoted to slides on top of latex):

the vertical centering of slide contents on page

I guess this could be achieved as CSS level but I
searched without success what CSS directive could help
for that.

Do you have an idea of how this could be achieved?

Thanks in advance,

Joël

    No, not really. Neither CSS nor HTML have the concept of
    "stretchable" space that makes this easy in TeX.

    In order to do this, I think you'd have to put the slide
    bodies in one-cellled table with a fixed height and then
    valign the contents of that table. Of course, this woul d be
    problematic if you resized the browser.

    In all but the multi-frame case, however, I think this would
    look odd as the headers and footers would tend to "jump" up
    and down as you went from slide to slide.

    I don't think there's a practical answer.
