HTML is what some people use to prepare visuals for a presentation. I believe in plain text myself. Keep it Simple. Certainly Powerpoint is spectacular, but I agree with the 10 points; the media takes priority over the message. And the handouts are often screwed up.

Not a born presenter myself, I would need the crutch of having great looking visuals to keep peoples attention. Wouldn't use Powerpoint though. Open Office Impress does the same thing. Web pages as an aid is an intresting option, even if it is a bit nerdy.

It's the file extension commonly used for web pages. ;-)
