I did a presentation using the "foils" class, and it was good enough.
What's the pros and cons using "seminar" and "foils"?
I could not convert the foils to HTML in a manner suitable for 
presentation, though. The PS and PDF output were greate, but I could not
find a way to produce similar quality of HTML (latex2html turned out to
be a dissapointment).
