Chapter 18. Publishing to the Internet > An Overview of the Publishing Process

An Overview of the Publishing Process

When you publish a PowerPoint presentation to the Internet, you go through two distinct steps. The first step is to transform your PowerPoint presentation from its native PowerPoint file format into a format suitable for viewing with a Web browser. The Save As HTML Wizard automates much of the process. After you accomplish that task, you must copy the Web presentation files to a Web server where other Internet users can access them. Another wizard—the Web Publishing Wizard—can make this part of the Internet publishing process easier for some users. However, if you have access to basic Internet utilities such as an FTP program, copying the files manually is fairly simple.

Note

Everything in this chapter that applies to publishing PowerPoint presentations to the Internet, applies equally to publishing to corporate intranets—the rapidly developing class of local area networks (LANs) that use the same standards as the Internet. As long as intranet users can use a standard Web browser to access and view documents on the network, they will be able to view your PowerPoint presentation as well. The only difference is scope. On an intranet, the World Wide Web is only company-wide.
