Mac: Notes no longer match slides

If you save your presentation as HTML, later find that your notes pages are no longer "synched" with your slides. This is most likely to happen after you've rearranged slides in the slide sorter view.
This is a known problem in PowerPoint 2001.

    Workaround: After you've rearranged your slides
  1. Save as a "PowerPoint 4.0 Presentation) file
  2. Close the presentation
  3. Open up the PowerPoint 4.0 Presentation file
  4. Save as a "Microsoft PowerPoint document" file
  5. Now save as web page (Notes should now synch with the slides in the browser)

Of course, any PowerPoint 2001 specific features will be lost when saved in the 4.0 file format (exit animations, QuickTime transitions, etc) but those are probably not so important if you're saving in HTML format since those features are not supported in HTML format either.

(Thanks to the man behind the man behind the curtain for this one!)
