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!
