Copy of the explanation I sent to Fernando a few week ago at the end of this mail.

I didn't had time to re-work on this, PR and bug report are welcomed.

> Slide is the unit of content that can appear on a screen at once. 
> So any cell that you will mark as "slide" with the Cell Toolbar UI can only be at the top of the screen and delimitate the beginning of a new slide.

> You can get "skip" and "notes" cells, those won't show in Live Slideshow mode nor in Damian's slideshow viewer.
> Difference is that slideshow viewer support speaker "notes" on a separate windows.

> Lastly "Fragment" is a part of a slide that shows after key press like a bullet point list in normal presentation if you wish, 
> except we are constrained at cell level in our case.

> By default undefined slide automatically appear with the previous slide.

> 2  slide
> 3  -
> 4  slide
> 5  slide
> 6  -
> 7  fragment
> 8  -
> 9  fragment
> 10 skip
> 11 fragment
> 12 slide

> Cell on screen after each key press.
