Welcome to the list!  It would be really cool to have an easy way to
create 'presentation notebooks'.  Basically, notebooks that break up
naturally in single-page units and for which page up/down or arrow
keys cause transitions, so that they can be used without scrolling and
only with  a presentation remote during talks.  But with actual cells
and code execution, so that one could then stop at some point, go to
the keyboard and do a bit of typing to demonstrate an interactive

Since changing the html view of the notebook itself is very
complicated, an interim solution might be to produce a 'presentation
view' of an existing notebook.  One could then switch to this view for
the presentation and switch back to the normal view for running code.
When giving a talk/lecture, it would just be a matter of opening both
views in two browser tabs and switching as needed.

Anyway, I'm sure Damian and others can come up with good ideas!
