Having just walked through the introduction I will say that deck appears
to be the most polished of the html presentation engines I have yet
seen. It would be nice to see some support for fitting html exported
from Org into deck.

I don't know of any standout in the space of html presentation engines,
and it seems to be fast-moving at the moment.

Given that, it may be wiser to continue supporting Org-mode integration
with as many of the engines as possible and wait to see if one naturally
rises above the competition. Or, said another way, my opinion is that
it may not be a good idea to try to standardize on a single html
presentation engine at this time.

This can happen without limiting to a single exporter.

I had a very good experience using the existing html exporter to
generate S5 presentations. All that was needed was a little bit of
post-processing and judicious use of existing export customization
options. I like this approach because it relies on existing Org-mode
functionality which is known to work well, and because it does not
require as much extra maintenance moving forward as would a whole new
