An S5 presentation is simply a Wiki page, at the top of which is some metadata:
author: Jacques Distler
company: University of Texas at Austin
title: S5 Integration
subtitle: slides in Instiki
slide_theme: nautilus
slide_footer: Released to the Internets
slide_subfooter: March 1, 2007
:category: S5-slideshow
The :category: S5-slideshow
is essential. It tells Instiki that this page is an S5 slideshow. Any page in this category has an extra “S5” view, in addition to the “TeX” and “Print” views. The other metadata fields are optional. If you omit author: ...
, the name of the person who last edited the page is used. If you omit title: ...
, the name of the page is used.
After that metadata, comes a series of slides

First Slide Title
* First point
* Second point
Second Slide Title
* Another boring bullet point.
etc.
Of course, you don’t have to use bullet points. You can use any Markdown (or XHTML) markup you wish.
are fully supported. You just type standard itex, and equations like (1) just appear.
You have to type
+-- {: .notes}
These are my notes for this slide.
=--
Usually, these optional notes contain the gory details and complicated equations, like $E=m c^2$, too messy to be presented in the main thread of the talk.
To get incremental display, use Maruku’s metadata syntax
Place a {: .incremental .show-first}
or {: .incremental}
to get incremental display.
Yes, all of S5’s other features are there, too.
Of course, it doesn’t have all the garish visual effects of Apple’s Keynote.
If you can’t do without garish, tacky, visual effects, there’s always SVG.
It does have Themes, though. That’s something, isn’t it?
Besides, do you really want to animate
Instiki has support for S5 Themes. Themes are stored in the public/s5/themes
directory. There are 6 supplied themes:
Choose a theme using the
slide_theme: NameOfTheme
directive in the metadata for your slideshow.
Of course, you can throw in images, like the one at right.
You can, equally well, use inline SVG (at left and below).
Automatic Syntax Coloring:
require 'chunks/chunk'
# Contains all the methods for finding and replacing wiki links.
module WikiChunk
include Chunk
# A wiki reference is the top-level class for anything that refers to
# another wiki page.
class WikiReference < Chunk::Abstract
# Name of the referenced page
attr_reader :page_name
# Name of the referenced page
attr_reader :web_name
# the referenced page
def refpage
@content.web.page(@page_name)
end

Let $H$ be a subgroup of a group $G$, and let $x$ and $y$ be elements of $G$. Suppose that $x H \cap y H$ is non-empty. Then $x H = y H$.
Let $z$ be some element of $x H \cap y H$. Then $z = x a$ for some $a \in H$, and $z = y b$ for some $b \in H$. If $h$ is any element of $H$ then $a h \in H$ and $a^{-1}h \in H$, since $H$ is a subgroup of $G$. But $z h = x(a h)$ and $xh = z(a^{-1}h)$ for all $h \in H$. Therefore $z H \subset x H$ and $x H \subset z H$, and thus $x H = z H$. Similarly $y H = z H$, and thus $x H = y H$, as required.
Let $H$ be a finite subgroup of a group $G$. Then each left coset of $H$ in $G$ has the same number of elements as $H$.
(Lagrange’s Theorem). Let $G$ be a finite group, and let $H$ be a subgroup of $G$. Then the order of $H$ divides the order of $G$.
You can include Wolfram CDF files, for even more dynamic presentations
And tables are easy to construct, using itex and Maruku’s extended Markdown table syntax:
$j$ | $0$ | $1$ | $2$ | $3$ | $4$ | $5$ | $6$ | $7$ | $8$ |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|
$C\ell_{j}^-$ | $\mathbb{R}$ | $\mathbb{C}$ | $\mathbb{H}$ | $\mathbb{H}\oplus\mathbb{H}$ | $\mathbb{H}(2)$ | $\mathbb{C}(4)$ | $\mathbb{R}(8)$ | $\mathbb{R}(8)\oplus\mathbb{R}(8)$ | $\mathbb{R}(16)$ |
$C\ell_{j}^+$ | $\mathbb{R}$ | $\mathbb{R}\oplus\mathbb{R}$ | $\mathbb{R}(2)$ | $\mathbb{C}(2)$ | $\mathbb{H}(2)$ | $\mathbb{H}(2)\oplus\mathbb{H}(2)$ | $\mathbb{H}(4)$ | $\mathbb{C}(8)$ | $\mathbb{R}(16)$ |
Go wild!
If you haven’t already done so, check out the slide controls at the lower right of this slide. Click on ≣ to bring up the slide notes (in a separate window). Run through the slide show, perusing the notes.
Look at the regular XHTML view of this slide show (or the Source view). Then head on over to the S5 site to learn more about using S5.
This consisted, mainly, of fixing the Javascript to use DOM-scripting, instead of innerHTML
