If you happen to use DokuWiki, you don't need to use OpenOffice.org Impress or other similar tool to create a slick presentation. Thanks to the S5 plugin, you can turn any DokuWiki page into a simple and elegant S5 presentation.

To turn a wiki page into an S5 presentation, simply insert the ~~SLIDESHOW~~ command into it. Use the H1 header to mark the initial slide and H2 headers for all additional slides. You can also use a horizontal rule to mark the end of the current slide, and any notes that come after that are treated as notes that appear only when the slide is printed.

To run the presentation, click on the Slideshow icon in the upper-right corner of the page. The plugin also supports different themes, and you can choose the one you like in the Plugin Settings section of the administrative interface (press the Admin button, click on the Configuration Settings link, then click on the S5 Plugin Settings link).
