AxPoint generates slideshows in PDF format from a simple XML description format. It is written as a Perl SAX2 handler, but also ships with command line tools. The format supports slide transitions, PDF bookmarks, bullet point transitions, images, text colours, different fonts, and more. The program's output uses the standard XML::SAX::Writer consumer classes, so you can output directly to a file, a string, or however you need to; this is very useful for dynamic web based presentations. The program supports GIF, JPEG, PNG and TIFF image formats.
