POD is an easy to learn structured markup language aimed to write documentation for Perl modules. PodWiki uses this language as its markup and therefore I wanted to use it for HTML slideshows as well.
You can get the latest version of Pod::S5 from CPAN.
I maintain also a local copy here: Pod-S5-0.09.tar.gz.
Please note, Pod::S5 supports syntax highlighting of various languages using the perl Module Syntax::Highlight::Engine::Kate if it's installed.
Another tool for creating slideshows is AxPoint which is part of the content management framework AxKit. Although it generates PDF files, I decided to write a wrapper for it to make it possible to write AxPoint presentations in POD.
In fact I had the idea before I knew of S5 - however, you may download the tool anyway.

You can install the authide firefox extension which hides the toolbars on F11 key press.
