In my opinion, the HTML export of Impress should be CSS- and code-compatible 
with either HTML Slidy by Dave Regget or with Eric Meyer's S5 to ease their 
portability. As an enhancement, opening them would also very handy (but I can't 
select both subcomponents).

Perhaps this could be achieved via XSLT, converting every XML-Element in a slide
to the html-aquevalent.

Support the user with wizards, that help converting the document, and you could
create something like a web publishing wizard for web-based and accessible
presentations. Take a look at this for inspiration:

Please have a look at the following issues:

 issue 66169 (
describing a more web-centered Impress, and the 2 sub-issues:
 issue 79866 (, and
 issue 79882 (

As time will permit, I will file additional issues in that series.

Issues may arise when converting textual elements to HTML: different sizes on
different browsers, different default fonts...

An alternative, although uncommon solution may be to export Impress objects as
individual images, and that way keep the slide structure in the exported HTML.
Objects with text may be converted to images with ALT and/or LONGDESC attributes
containing the text, so the exported HTML becomes both accessible and search
engine friendly. Basic interaction can be also exported this way, by generating
anchors around image objects. 

Absolute positioning seems reasonable. To minimize load times for slides with
many objects, those that have neither text nor interaction assigned to it can be
grouped and exported as one image.

An advanced usage of this approach can be the usage of currently available
JavaScript libraries to export object animation. For example, JQuery already
implements most of Impress's animation features, and is designed in a way that
suggests usability in our scenario.

taking over, lets see if we can solve this with the upcomming ooo internship...

@cl: This sounds very good. Am I correct that there is already something out
called HTML Slidy/S6?
