Hi, Robert, Well,... YMMV. Robert M. Muench wrote:

All I can say is that there are times when people where I work care *very* much about internal presentations (e.g., training, presenting business case for mgt approval, keeping loosely- coordinated groups in synch, training some new suit to what a department does, etc. ad infinitum...) Those are all just as much a part of "real business" IMHO as retail sales or consulting.

The way I understood the message of that's *exactly* the point (and sense). What if someone is using a box that doesn't run anything from Redmond? Are they not doing "real business" and therefore disqualified from viewing/participating? The idea of a platform-agnostic presentation capability (especially if it supports real-time interactivity) makes tremendous sense to me, for all kinds of reasons. And I think RT has proven that it can be done. In the extreme case, send the entire presentation AND /View on a single diskette/email. They'll easily fit! -jn- -- This sentence contradicts itself -- no actually it doesn't. -- Doug Hofstadter joel<dot>neely<at>fedex<dot>com
