Thanks to Michael for the Web reference. I am still using
seminar.sty, whose home page is at
and whose most recent User Guide is still dated 1 April 1993 and has a
picture of an acetate beamer on the front. I will look into possible
alternatives (especially Beamer).

	A summary (admittedly incomplete) of various LaTeX presentation

tools is available at <>.  Based  
on recent conference participation and discussions on LaTeX-oriented  
discussion lists, I would venture that, in addition to beamer, the  
following packages are also relatively popular and/or popular:

	powerdot: <>
	prosper:  <>
	TeXPower: <>

For the 1/2 of the presenters using [Power|Mac]Books that Kit  
mentioned, I have also found the combination of Keynote and LaTeXiT  
to be convenient and useful -- nicely leverages the native PDF-output  
of Stata on Mac OS X!
