There is an [S5 bundle for TextMate] which I have used once. You
can write your slides as a markdown file with a little added syntax
and generate a preview or convert to HTML.
If you are not using TextMate or are not on a Mac, you can surely
adapt the Ruby script used by TextMate and adapt it to your needs.
