  • Of course you knew I'd reply ;-)

    If you don't like XML, you can always author AxPoint presentations in POD. Pod::SAX now ships with an XSLT stylesheet for converting the output of Pod::SAX into AxPoint format.

    Anyway, I guess MGP seems to float a few people's boats, but I just never found it as clear and crisp as Acrobat Reader - especially now the latter supports cleartype. Plus I have to strongly agree with ziggy's point about not being able to print mgp slides properly - that's a major pain.
    • You want HTML output too; Google and other web surfers likes it better.

        - ask (who is using a hacked up Pod::POM and alternately would use AxPoint with Matt's pod -> axpoint converter)

        HTML is free with XSLT. The AxPoint format is pretty trivial - it'd be an hours job to knock together some good XSLT to do the conversion. XSLT can even output to multiple files if that's how you like it.
