Graphical Power Point presentations, when converted to Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) have a defined graphical format, and are not portable to other browsers. Xpoint is an ongoing development work by Dr. Schreiner. It is a simple presentation graphical system . The presentation is specified in Extensible Markup Language (XML) and is converted to well navigable HTML for browsing, appearance is controlled using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). The presentation can also be converted to Portable Document Format (PDF) format which provides more flexibility. The project will extend the styles and capabilities of the existing Xpoint graphical presentation system. XML presentation will be presented in various layouts depending on the style template applied. A comparison study will also be done for the portability of the resulting HTML presentations in different web browsers.
