foiltex – A class for overhead transparencies

This is a venerable package, which used to have many admirers. It has not, however, been adopted by any of those developing screen-projector packages (as for example seminar was adopted by the developers of prosper).

The class may be used with fancybox to place a variety of borders around the slides.
