Subject Re: Orthogonal Question: SVG from Powerpoint?
Date Tue, 10 Jul 2001 15:40:56 GMT
Hello Peter!

Thanks for your comments! I was looking really hard at open office...but
it doesn't have a dbase element like SO 5.2 but then again I hesitate to
jump into it now...waiting for 6.0 and full XML conformation (!?).

Do you use SO 5.2 for generating SVG at all?

Cheers
Denny
