This is quite neat. Impressively simple.

I liked the idea so much that I stole it for my wiki.

http://sputnik.freewisdom.org/en/Slideshow_Demo -- formatted as a wiki page
http://sputnik.freewisdom.org/en/Slideshow_Demo.code -- the source
http://sputnik.freewisdom.org/en/Slideshow_Demo.slides -- as slides

If you have a page to play with:

The cool thing is that Markdown + the html templates is pretty much
all it takes. (Apart from the templates, I only had to add 16 lines
of code to do the demo.)

BTW, what's the license (for the HTML part)?
