I must admit that I have never tried columns within a block although I
guess this should work.  My view of blocks is that they are meant to
highlight a particular idea or concept and therefore I tend to have
small amounts of text or images within a block but, of course, others
may have different views on this.

D'oh!  Of course.  Works like a charm!

You can specify, for specific frames, whether they should appear or
not in either beamer or handout modes and you can in fact specify
which parts of a frame (using visibility modifiers) will appear in
either case (although I must admit that I've never actually got this
to work properly despite following the beamer documentation).

Although it would indeed be nice to produce the slides and the
syllabus from the same document, I am not sure how to do this in
beamer, much less in org-mode!

I'll send you some examples off list as I don't necessarily want them
disseminated widely.

Thanks,
