foiltex is a set of LaTeX style files that makes it easy to prepare
material for video or overhead projection, such as transparencies,
slides, and computer-projected presentations.
It allows the user to manipulate the text typeface and size for
display and create header and footer material, and includes special
environments for scientific and mathematical presentations.
