XML Presenter now supports printable slides

I haven't updated the codebase available from the xmlpresenter project page in a while, but development still continues on it as I do more presentations.

Today's update was to add printability to the slides. This is done by using the media="print" part of the <link> tag.

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen,projection" href="presenter.css"/>

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="print" href="printview.css"/>
When you print, a different css will be applied than 'presenter.css' - very cool.

Specific changes are:

  • all slides are shown
  • slide titles use a smaller font, and lack borders
  • slides with no titles are not printed
Useful, I suppose, if you want to print out your slides in "outline" form.
