  • Get the current version of these slides in HTML, PDF, or POD from here:
  • See Appendix 1: Fonts at the end of this talk for instructions on font set-up.
  • These slides were written in pod using vi, with the help of a score of Unicode tools available via the link in Appendix 2: Tools.
  • This slide show was built using Pod::S5 by Tom Linden, which in turn uses S5 by Eric Meyer. Slideshow controls appears if you hover near the bottom right corner, but I find it easier to use keystroke commands to navigate.
  • I’ve used next to no HTML tricks here; nearly all fancy‐qua‐weird stuff you see here is actually Unicode.
