Thanks, I have this working more or less (I don't seem to have a symbol font
that goes bigger than 24pt, but I can live with that).

Next question, maybe tougher: can slideshow.ss display antialiased fonts
under Linux/XFree86?  If so, what are the requirements to achieve this?
Freetype, XFS, XFT, recompiling my entire Linux distribution from
scratch...?  I don't need detailed config instructions, I just want to know
if it's possible, and if so, what the requirements are.
