Microsoft PowerPoint 2000 provides you with the tools you need to create and save your presentation as a Web page and to publishe it on the World Wide Web. The Save As Web Page feature formats your presentation in Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), a simple coding system used to format documents for an intranet or the Internet. Saving your presentation in HTML format means you can use most Web browsers to view your presentation. Any presentation can easily be saved as a Web document and viewed in a Web browser. By saving your PowerPoint presentations as Web pages, you can share your data with others via the Web.
To assist you in creating Web pages, PowerPoint includes several Web templates that you can edit to fit your needs. Incorporating action buttons and hyperlinks within your presentation adds an element of connectivity to your work. If you add action buttons to your slides, you can click a button in slide show to jump instantly to another slide, presentation, or program file. If you add hyperlinks to objects, you can jump to Internet and intranet locations. In addition, Microsoft offers tips, software updates, tools, and general information through its Office Web site.
If you intend to use PowerPoint to create Web pages, you might want to take advantage of PowerPoint's specially designed Internet templates. The AutoContent Wizard lets you add hyperlinks between the slides in your presentation or hyperlinks to your e-mail address. The Group Home Page template helps you create a customized home page for your corporate or personal Web site. You can also save any page you design to an FTP server or HTML server using PowerPoint's Save As command.

When you create a self-running presentation to show at a kiosk, you might want a user to be able to move easily to specific slides or to a different presentation altogether. To give an audience this capability, insert action buttons, which a user can click to jump to a different slide or presentation. Clicking an action button activates a hyperlink, a connection between two locations in the same document or in different documents.

Create an Action Button to Go to a Specific Slide
You can turn one of the objects on your slide into an action button so that when you click or move over it, you activate a hyperlink and jump to the new location. You can point hyperlinks to almost any destination, including slides in a presentation and Web pages on the World Wide Web.

You can create hyperlinks in your presentation that access other sources, such as another presentations, a file a Web site, or even a program. This feature is especially useful for kiosk presentations, where you want to make information available to your audience, even if you can't be there to provide it.

PowerPoint allows you to save any presentation as a Web page, written in HTML, the language used by Internet browsers to interpret and display Web pages. You can save a file as an HTML file by using the Save As command or the Save As Web Page command. Once you save the file in HTML format, you can preview and then publish the Web page. To publish a Web page means to place a copy of the presentation in HTML format on the Web. You can publish a complete presentation, a custom show, a single slide, or a range of slides.

If you're connected to a Web server with Office Server Extensions, click the Web Folders icon to select a location on the Internet or intranet.
When you save or publish a presentation as a Web page, you can change the appearance of the Web page by changing PowerPoint's Web options. You can set Web options to add slide navigation buttons, change Web page colors, show slide transitions and animations in the broswer window, and resize graphics to fit the display of the browser window.
Change Web Page Options
After saving a presentation as a Web page, you can open the Web page, an HTML file, in PowerPoint. This allows you to quickly and easily switch from HTML to the standard PowerPoint format and back again without losing any formatting or functionality. For example, if you create a formatted chart in an PowerPoint presentation, save the presentation file as a Web page, and then reopen the Web page in PowerPoint, the chart will look the same as the original chart in PowerPoint. PowerPoint preserves the original formatting and functionality of the presentation.
Open a Presentation as a Web Page in PowerPoint
To open the Web page in your browser, click the Open button drop-down arrow, and then click Open In Browser.
Once you've created a presentation and saved it as a Web page, you can see how it looks in your browser—Microsoft Internet Explorer or another browser. It is a good idea to preview your page before you publish it to the Web just as you would preview a document before you print it. Previewing a Web page shows you what the page will look like once it's posted on the Internet. When you display a Web presentation in a Web browser, a navigation bar appears with toolbar buttons to make it easy to navigate through the Web presentation. You can also view your presentation as a Web page one slide at a time, in full-screen mode, as an outline, or as the slide master.
