The Presentations package has routines EvaluateAt and EvaluateAtPattern for
evaluating held expressions in a controlled manner. It also has facilities
for creating formatted displays in any format, including graphics and
dynamic elements, and hiding all the Input specifications. An example using
a two column display with comments on one side and output on the other side
(with tooltips that show the Input statements) will be posted on Peter
Lindsay's site:

Peter Lindsay at the Mathematical Institute in the University of St Andrews
[ ] has kindly undertaken to maintain an archive that
provides downloadable notebooks and PDF files for various Presentations
solutions that have appeared on MathGroup.

I have a mathematical expression and I have to demonstrate a real world 
example - an actual computation using the formula.
For that purpose I'd like to show all intermediate steps, not just the 
final result.
Is there a way to tell Mathematica to do one step at a time and not just 
show the final result?

For example



In other words I wouldn't like to type in all the equations with the 
exact numerical values.
