Theming your presentation

CSS Hierarchy

When loading the slide content from (for instance) slides/AndrewWasWrong.html, the original:

2 <section class="shout">
4 <h2>Andrew was wrong, again</h2>
8 </section>
is modified at runtime to the following:
1 <div class="slide" id="AndrewWasWrong">
2 <section class="shout">
4 <h2>Andrew was wrong, again</h2>
6 <footer class="pagenumber">12</footer>
7 <div class="overlay"></div>
8 </section>
9 </div>
wrapping the side and adding a page number and some additional machinery to handle events in list (aka "slide sorter") mode. You don't really need to know this, except if you're working on the stylesheet for your own theme.

The class hierarchy you work in is  html body div.deck div.slide section. You can omit most of that in a CSS stylesheet; the following is sufficient:

56 .slide section {
57         padding-top: 50px;
58         padding-left: 80px;
59         padding-right: 80px;
60         padding-bottom: 0;
61         width: 864px;
62         height: 718px;
63         background: #ffffff;
64         color: #000000;
65         z-index: 1;
66 }
which is in fact the declaration from engine/style.css that sets the baseline properties and dimensions for your <section> elements.
