Subject: Re: [office] auto-play presentation file format like PPS
I'm new here, but there is something that I want to understand (I maybe loss a part of the conversations). Why implement this functionality on manifest file, and why let it be linked to any MIME type content ? I'm worried because the implementation on that item, really reminds me the OnOpen() handler that was used on MsOffice to run malicious code (or to run or call arbitrary content when the document is open - i.e. Melissa virus used that functionality). Can we limit this proposed "manifest:preferred-view-mode" only to presentation files, or manage a way to insert this tag inside the header of presentation files ? Best Regards, Jomar PS.: Usually, if you change the .PPS to .PPT the file opens on edit mode, so this is an application behavior, not a specific file attribute.
