Re: [vox-tech] How to Generate Colorized Table Slides for Presentation?

OpenOffice Presentation can embed OpenOffice Spreadsheet, which can
colorize tables.  Just tried it.  Works like a charm.

BTW, when I did the Autoconf/Automake talk, I got the colorized C
sourcecode by (1)creating colorized HTML C sourcecode via gvim (Syntax ->
Convert to HTML), (2)saving the file, (3)opening it in Mozilla, and (4)
embedding OpenOffice Text documents into presentation, and copying &
pasting the mozilla text into it and formatting its size and font.
