I'm very glad to see this! Thanks for pointing it out. I'll certainly  
try it out but

I've always been unhappy that Keynote wasn't able to deal with in- 
line equations---I thought the baseline information was part of the  
file I dragged from LaTeXiT to Keynote. As long as I stay with  
displayed equations things look great.

Good Luck,
