Thanks for the hat-tip!

The problem with my presentations is that the production tool-chain is 
only approachable by programmers, and probably not even all of them! I 
have a tendency toward custom-written purely text-based tools that give 
me lots of control at the expense of ease of use.

The source of that presentation is here:

I don't know how to get the highlighting (both static and dynamic) in a 
WYSIWYG presentation tool.  :(
