PowerPoint HTML Convertor  (#82)
It would be nice to have some mechanism (wobject??) that processes MS Powerpoint files and automatically loads them into WebGUI. This wobject would either process the native PowerPoint file, or the "saved as html" files for inclusion into WebGUI. I don't need the bells and whistles of a slide show, or even the animation of stuff on the individual slides, but it would be nice to be able to automatically create the size of each image and the navigation of the entire slideshow. I assume if the powerpoint files can be added to WebGUI, then the "text only" portion of each slide can be incorporated into each page, allowing the user to decide whether they want the image or text powerpoint show. My brainstorming sessions about this issue brought me to two possible solutions: process the native powerpoint file, or allow each user to save their slideshow as html, zip the entire directory, and allow them to upload the zipped powerpoint files to be processed and included as a wobject. Let me know what you

Zip upload seems to be the best bet, so far.
