If your browser is enabled for SVG, I advise you to view the slideset in SVG. You may want to check the SVG Implementations page for more details on players and on the latest versions. Otherwise, you can use the links to the HTML slides below, but you will loose, for example, some rescaling and animation effects. Besides, the slides look much nicer in SVG...
