I do my slides in DocBook, if possible. Sometimes PPT format is
required, so I use OpenOffice Impress, which is painful.

Did you use my docbookslides2s5.xsl, I posted on 2007-01-05 on
the docbook-apps mailing list? It should be in the archives.
I used role=incremental in lists, but don't think, I had support
for overlayed images.

It would be nice to have docbook slides support in dblatex
(http://dblatex.sourceforge.net/), maybe using the "beamer"
class, but nobody seems to be working on this.
