H. Animated Templates
----------------------------------------------Please note that flash clips cannot be transparent in PowerPoint since the trans
parency mode for Flash is not supported in PowerPoint. This also means that you
cannot overlay flash with text.
Our company does not hold responsibility for this PowerPoint feature.
Testing show that animations from PowerPoint 2003 templates do not act properly
in PowerPoint 2007. This is yet to be resolved.
