On a side issue, as much as I like Keynote for the sleek looks, it  
generates enormous files. I recently gave two talks, one in Keynote,  
one in beamer. The Keynote file size was 5.2 MB, the beamer file only  
0.7 MB. Granted, these were two different subjects but still of  
similar quantity in math and graphics. I find it hard to justify the  
gargantuanism of Keynote.
