Craig and all,

  Actually this brings a refinement/restatement of the problem (I have 
asked WRI but have not heard back form them yet):

1. Is there a way to automatically import Powerpoint to Mathematica slide show 
(Inverse statement for intentions related to previous question)?

2. Since there is a plugin to import an Applet into a Powerpoint, is 
there a way to get the Manipulator Object to Mapped to an Applet? I 
realize that manipulator uses JLink internally (and therefore it should 
(maybe) have a Java object incarnation) but I had no had the time to 
investigate further....

Any thoughts?

Thanks greatly,

-john michopoulos
