Hi Dave, great.

So that work could be started any time, one suggestion, a wiki category
"Proposed for migration to website".

I guess my question was mis-phrased, the challenge is to find a "screen
shot + text" slide show.

Remark does quite a good job of re-sizing images, allowing a predictable
amount of text and avoiding image or text running off screen.

Other slide shows I have experimented with, tend to leave too much white
space, and/or it is difficult to arrange image and text nicely, and/or
images have to be re-sized at production time, resulting in the risk of
loss of definition.

Getting out nice quality Sugar images, nicely placed on screen is quite
important to me.
