Hi David,

Thanks for the details. Indeed I get now what is expected from your 
macros, and as a matter of fact the result is much much better than 
that of my crude macros... You did a great improvement!
So I am going to use yours from now on: thanks again!

If I can suggest a possible improvement to the t-rsteps.tex macros, 
it is the following:
When one uses these macros with an automatic numbering such as 
\placeformula[equation-reference] (see the example below), with each 
invocation of \page (that is a step) the number increases, and this 
is an unwanted side result. Would it possible to "freeze" the 
numbering procedure in such a way that the number doesn't change in 
each step? (When I was using my macros, I didn't use \placeformula in 
sildes with steps, but rather an old \leqno from plain TeX).

Best regards: OK

|(u|v)| \leq \Vert u\Vert \cdot \Vert v \Vert.
