Single File Web Page Option Doesn't Work on the Latest Netscape Version
I published my presentation as a Single File Web Page. I know it isn't supported on earlier versions of Netscape, but it also can't be

Your only options for Netscape compatible PowerPoint content is either by saving the presentation as a Netscape compatible file (don't save as single file) or having PowerPoint save the screens as graphic files and calling the content from a Web page developed for this purpose. You can also cut and paste content from a PowerPoint presentation and save it directly into your Web pages as desired.
PowerPoint Content Is Damaged
I made a simple edit to some HTML content created by PowerPoint. The PowerPoint slides now don't present as required through the HTML interface. How can I fix this?

Microsoft Publisher is designed for creating print
Microsoft realizes that many people are very comfortable with the easy page layout tools of Publisher and want to put content on the Web without learning the complexities of Web development. For those people, Publisher provides the ability to save a publication in HTML format. That ability, however, does not come without a price. As you will see in this chapter, HTML files generated by Publisher can carry a significant amount of code, and they might not always display the way you expect them to.
Publisher's Web site templates (shown in Figure 42.1) are quite simple compared to FrontPage's templates. Depending on which template you choose, Publisher will create one or more pages in your publication.
