Previously I created org charts in ppt, but now it seems very limiting in its functionality and appearance.  Working from Windows XP.  Suggestions on best application to make a good org chart?

What version you using? If you used Office 2003 or Office 2007, should be no problem. I will suggedt you use Office 2007 PowerPoint. Especially the new feature "SMART ART"

In previous versions of office (Off2k and earlier) they used a different addin tool to create the org charts - if you then opened a previous version of PPT org chart in a  newer version of PPT then the org chart would appear as an image. So to edit an older version of the org chart you need to recreate in the new version of PPT.  But this would cause compatibility problems with different versions of office

Hope this helps
