LaTeX & Slideshows
I'm mystified - what is the 'correct' proceedure for getting nice, LaTeX-typset equations into a slideshow (in this case, OpenOffice Impress)? This is what I've been doing:
TeX --> DVI --> PS --> GIMP --> copy & paste --> ooffice (as bmp)
It looks great, but I'm sure there's a way to save the effort?

You can use dvipng or dvigif to convert it directly to a image. Of course I'm on a linux machine, so I don't know if you have these.
The other option is to use the built-in math typesetting stuff in Openoffice.
Personally, I don't even bother with OO Impress. I just go from latex->pdf and that's my presentation. I use Texmacs as the frontend.
 Here is dvipng for all platforms:

dvipng -D 1000 -T tight filename.tex
The built-in equation editor isn't flexible enough - hence LaTeX. Just making a PDF presentation is a very good idea, though not for this particular talk.
