I recently found out about slideml[1], but the two things which I didn't
really like about it were it being written in perl and producing XHTML
instead of just regular HTML. I began working on my own tool, hsg (HTML
Slidy Generator), which is slideml rewritten in ksh. There are
currently several bugs with the HTML output and I haven't had much
motivation to fix them just yet as I don't begin school again until
fall, but others are welcome to take a look and provide fixes.

hg clone

No PDF output, unfortunately.
