Optimize PowerPoint's HTML for Netscape Navigator
Thanks to our buddy at MS for this info:
By default, when you save or publish a Web presentation in Microsoft PowerPoint 2000, the file is saved in HTML format, which is optimized for Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 or later. This format provides the best fidelity, fastest performance, and smallest file size. However, if your Web presentation will be viewed by people who use any version of Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0, do the following to allow your presentation to be viewed by any browser:
On the File menu, click Save as Web Page, and then click Publish.
In the Publish as Web Page dialog box, click All browsers listed above (creates larger files).
If you have any version of Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0:
- Animations, including slide transitions, are not supported (except animated GIF pictures).
- GIF pictures might not be animated if the presentation is saved with a screen size setting of 640 x 480 or less. Click Web Options on the General tab in the Options dialog box (Tools menu), and then check the Screen size option on the Pictures tab.
- The slide isn't scaled to fit the browser window - it stays at a fixed screen resolution based on the screen size setting selected when you published the presentation. Click Web Options on the General tab in the Options dialog box (Tools menu), and then adjust the Screen size option on the Pictures tab as necessary.
- The presentation cannot be viewed full screen.
- You cannot open or close frames.
- The active slide title is not highlighted in the outline pane.
- The mouse does not highlight elements in the outline pane.
- Sounds and movies do not play.
- Additionally, some graphics will not look as good as they do in Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 or later.
