PythonPoint, from ReportLab, is an Open Source package for making
presentation slides.  There's still time to use it for Monterey 2000!

Slides are defined in an XML syntax, and a Python script converts them into
a PDF document. It uses the ReportLab PDF library, the only pdf library to
expose advanced Acrobat presentation features. Capabilities include

- Outline tree for easy navigation
- Page transition special effects
- Full control over text attributes
- Vector images coded in Python
- Accepts bitmap images in most common formats
- Style sheets and templates - re-brand presentations in seconds!

p.s. thanks to Tom Christensen, whose "PerlPoint" last year provided the
idea and the name.
