Is it possible to have a timeline within a slide in 2004 Pro?

I want to move to a slide and then have a series of text items (or graphics) appear gradually one after the other, without intervention from the user - like timed bullet points appearing in Powerpoint (sorry to mention that name).

I tried making a slide with four separate static text items, 1, 2, 3 and 4.
I put them on different layers on the slide, 12 frames apart, with a movie set at 12 frames per second.
I expect the slide to appear when I navigate to it, then the 4 items to appear 1 second after each other.
This works in design view. When I move the play head it looks right.
When I publish the movie it is as tho' there was no timeline, they simply all appear as the slide appears, no animation at all.

Thanks for any help
