Hi All,
  Been looking around on the web for an answer for this question, but have not found the answer.  I am currently trying to find a way to "generate" a powerpoint presentation via ASP.  This will basically build a template that acna then be passed off for customization by end users.  The scenario is this.  W2k server w/ .NET and Sharepoint Team Services.  We are trying to figure out a way to generate the powerpoint presentations for the end users.  I have researched this extensively and the only way I have found is to use OLE automation (Which is a security nightmare :( ...)  Now, using Office XP (Maybe older versions as well), you can save as a web page in Powerpoint which will generate all the necessary code in HTML, XML, XSLT and Javascript so that the slides are viewable via a Web Browser.  Does anyone know of a way to generate the appropriate XML for this?  Is there an API that can accomplish this (similar to the wddx COM objects that are available for other XML type projects.).  I really want to stay away from Office Automation for this one.

Thanks to anyone who can shed some light,
