I want all on one page as text (what Mary pointed out: the mgp2html perl
script does this). The above puts all slides onto separate pages. (And both do a
horrendous job with the HTML.) I'll re-work the mgp2html.pl file a bit so
that it outputs valid XHTML with a document type definition at the top.
That way I'll be able to easily drop in a CSS link at the top of the page
and have the slide show match whatever web site it's being dumped into.

generating page 1... (full image)(thumbnail)
sh: line 1: djpeg: command not found 
sh: line 1: pnmscale: command not found

I guess the debian package doesn't actually install all the programs that
are needed...I can't make images out of the slide show without installing 
more stuff. Which is fine, it's just not going to happen tonight. ;)
