comment basic `StyleDefinitions` question: setting cell `Backgroun` when printing
it is not explicit in the docs as far as I am aware but a general principle of Mma is that only the first occurrence of options is used and even though these are style definitions rather than options the same principle applies

comment How can I evaluate untrusted Mathematica code in a sandbox?
@Szabolcs there is a list of dangerous functions that are stored in an internal text file. I don't have the reference handy right now but have posted it on here before(maybe 2-3 years ago). Presumably if you were able to find this file in the CDF directory and modify it you could enable some functions that are otherwise prevented. ...but I have never tried to do that

comment Hidden parent stylesheet?
...So the lack of reference to default in your example means nothing because there is still the default setting in your options inspector

comment Hidden parent stylesheet?
ok i see what you mean. there is always a default stylesheet. For example if you open a new notebook then edit the stylesheet and delete the reference to default.nb that doesn't mean you have no underlying styles. You will have default style definitions which you can find in the option inspector. For me my default is my own custom stylesheet so when I start with a default notebook (white) and then delete the ref to default stylesheet the notebook immediately changes to a yellowish background (my personal default).

comment Hidden parent stylesheet?
don't understand your follow up question. This is defined in the default stylesheet. Whenever you switch to slideshow screen environment the docked cell appears as per stylesheet specification. local settings override global settings. you have made specific local settings for the notebook with use the inherited (global) value (i.e. FEPrivateFrontEndResource["FEExpressions", "SlideshowToolbar"]) for slideshows. So for me this does what is expected.

comment Hidden parent stylesheet?
it comes from the style environment definition: Cell[StyleData[All, "SlideShow", StyleDefinitions -> StyleData[All, "Presentation"]], PageWidth->WindowWidth, DockedCells->FEPrivate`FrontEndResource["FEExpressions", "SlideshowToolbar"], ScrollingOptions->{"PagewiseDisplay"->True, "VerticalScrollRange"->Fit}, ShowGroupOpener->False, MenuSortingValue->1300]
