Turning S5 into PDF

For the last couple of years I’ve been using Eric Meyer’s S5 for creating and presenting slides. It uses a combination of CSS and Javascript to create nice-looking slides which can be viewed in any decent web browser (see, for example, the slides from last Saturday’s Perl Teach-In). As an extra bonus, there is BooK’s spod5 framework that turns Perl POD into an S5 presentation. So, all in all, I’m very happy.

But I’ve just signed up with Slide Share so that I can share the slides from some of my presentations. And Slide Share doesn’t support S5 slides. It doesn’t even support plain HTML presentations.

So I want a way to convert S5 presentations to PDF files. I’m sure there’s a way by chaining together half a dozen or so tools. But before I go off working out how to do it, I wondered if any of my very clever readers had any good ideas.
