Using PowerPoint 97 with FrontPage 2000

There's a wizard in PowerPoint 97 that helps you create a slideshow, which you can then import into a FrontPage 2000 web. Begin by opening (or creating and saving) the PowerPoint presentation you want in the web and then follow these steps:

  1. Choose File, Save as HTML to start the Save as HTML Wizard in PowerPoint (see Figure B.14). You don't do anything in the first wizard dialog box, so choose Next.

  2. Select the New Layout option button in the dialog box unless you have a saved layout you want to use. Choose Next.

  3. Select the Standard option button in the dialog box unless you want a framed setup for the slideshow. Choose Next.

  4. Decide if you want the graphics converted to GIF or JPEG or if you're using a PowerPoint animation. (You may never need to use the animation selection; FrontPage 98 lets you insert an animation file directly via the Insert, Active Elements, PowerPoint Animation command.) Choose Next.

  5. Specify the monitor resolution your viewers are most likely to be using, as well as the width of screen the presentation is to occupy in the dialog box. Choose Next.

  6. Create the information page options in the next dialog box. Choose Next.

  7. Specify custom colors if you want them; otherwise select the Use Browser Colors option button in the dialog box. Choose Next.

  8. Specify button style and layout styles, respectively, in the next two dialog boxes. Choose Next to move to the next dialog box. Here you specify the folder where the PowerPoint HTML file will be saved. Provide a folder name and choose Next. Choose Finish; PowerPoint readies the creation of the HTML slideshow.

  9. Save the layout options you've developed in the preceding steps. If you want to do this, provide a name for the saved layout; otherwise choose Don't Save. The conversion process begins when that step is complete. When it completes successfully, you'll see a message stating as such.
