[OS X TeX] Re: Is there a Latex package for creating html slidy presentations?

Thanks a lot fpr ypur hints, Lus. But I am user of powerdot  since it
appeared. My problem is the following: I have got a lot of teaching
material in latex and most of it to be compiled with powerdot. I
often use links from pdf documents to anchors within other pdf
documents. But now I am preparing to manage my courses within Moodle
an it seems difficult for me to link from Moodle pages into pdf
files. A few days ago I saw a Slidy presentation (http://www.w3.org/
Talks/Tools/Slidy/) the first time and found it fairly nice.
students are not forced to change between reader and browser.
