Subject: Re: [office] auto-play presentation file format like PPS

If we really have not defined it yet, I propose to define it in ODF 1.2 since the requirement of presentation auto-play is obvious for many users. We need to discuss the feasiblity and the solution in this loop. The contents can be:

I like the general idea, but I have two comments:
1. The general approach/convention should apply to ALL OpenDocument files.
For example, if I have an .odt document that I normally _read_ instead of
_edit_, the same approach should work.
2. The approach should make it easy to invoke a DIFFERENT program than the

E.G., in the "one laptop per child" system, it'd make sense to have a lot of
textbooks in OpenDocument format that are normally opened in a "browser"
(read-only) mode, while other documents that you're working on would be
opened using an editor.  (The browser might be optimized just for reading).
