Sorry about that. I did do a new version where (in tests) it opens on 
actual "page" (the drawing area) in Inkscape. If you get the new one, open it 
and then use the middle mouse button to drag the canvas downwards - the 
individual pages/slides are arranged down the screen, with related info to 
the right. Try the various zoom levels in Inkscape to get it to zoom out and 
show all the stuff on the canvas and then zoom in and drag around.

Well, it's what it is. I had to pack it to keep all the related images 
together, no other way I could think to do it really.

I could not achieve the design I did in HTML. I could make pngs or jpgs 
available, but it seems moot because it's all there in Inkscape and people 
can make their own.

Oh, speaking of images... I just remembered another chap has started putting 
together some info that includes my diagrams:

Well, I hope you come right.
