Javascript for slide transition effects

You can control how pages first display with the following code. This won't necessarily work in all browsers and probably won't work at all in pre-version 4 browsers.

For a nice dissolve effect, include this in the <HEAD> section of your template:

<meta http-equiv="Page-Enter" content="blendTrans(Duration=4.0)">

Change the Duration= value to get slower or faster dissolves.

You can get other PowerPoint-like effects by using this:

<meta http-equiv="Page-Enter" content="RevealTrans(Duration=4,Transition=0)">

As above, change Duration= to slow down/speed up the effect. Here's a table of the numbers and the effects they produce. As far as we're aware, it's complete as of MSIE 4. MSIE5 and later may add other transitions.

Using the examples above, every html "slide" in your converted presentation will have the same transition effect. If you'd rather have the effects you've assigned to each slide in your presentation, use :Slide.TransitionEffect.MSIENumber: in your template. This will cause PPT2HTML to generate the number of the MSIE effect that most closely matches the native PPT transition effect. For example:
<meta http-equiv="Page-Enter" CONTENT="RevealTrans(Duration=2,Transition=:Slide.TransitionEffect.MSIENumber:)">
