	I was not speaking of MagicPoint.  I do use TeX (as is) for some
presentations myself, it does do things MagicPoint couldn't. Other people
have HTML templates to show presentations using the web browser...

	That's because of Makefile.common in the wml sources. The only
files installed (by default) when they are present on a given dir are:

OTHERFILES := $(wildcard *.ps.gz *.eps *.pdf *.css)
OTHERFILES += $(wildcard *.jpg *.jpeg *.gif *.png *.fig *.xcf.gz *.ppm)

	Otherwise you need to create a new install target such as:

        install -m 664 -p FILE1 FILE2 FILE3 .... $(HTMLDIR)

at debian-med/talks/Makefile.

	We could, of course, add mgp to the list of extensions that are
automatically included if found in the local dir too... Josip?
