Re: Re: XML to Powerpoint
Thanks! I have to use Powerpoint. I have already created XSL-FO to convert my XML to PDF via XSL-FO and an XSLT transformation for chunking the XML into HTML for slides. This works well for me. However, I have to supply my slides to someone in Powerpoint and they will not accept HTML slides. I will still make the PDF available because the resulting PDF contains more 'verbage' than the slides as handouts. After Wendell's and Michael Hahn's responses I tried to import my HTML slides - very messy. However, I will simplify my XSLT --> HTML conversion and see if it imports better. It has to be better than cutting and pasting! I was hoping there was something like RTF. Thanks to everyone for the suggestions!
