--- Comment #4 from Jim Warchol <jim.warchol@gmail.com> ---
I was able to replicate the issue that the original reporter found - see steps
and details below:
* Using OO v3.4 on Mac OS X v10.6.8 - MacBook Pro 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
with 8GB memory.
* Opened the saved .ppt files with Microsoft PowerPoint 2008 for Mac v12.3.3
(120411)

Steps to replicate the original bug as was reported:
1 - Under File > New > Presentation
2 - The Presentation Wizard is opened. Under Type, choose Empty Presentation.
Click Next.
3 - Select a slide design. To match style of original file attached, select
Blue Lines and Gradients.
4 - Select an output medium, use Screen (default). Click Next.
5 - Use default settings for Select a Slide Transition and Select the
Presentation Type. Click Create.
6 - Enter text in the header area and slide content area.
7 - Add shadow effect to both blocks of text by selecting the Shadow item in
the toolbar.
- - Expected result: Text display is white with a black drop shadow.
8 - (Optional) Save original file in .odp format.
9 - Select Save As... Select Microsoft PowerPoint 97/2000/XP (.ppt). Open the
saved .ppt file in PowerPoint.
- - Result - this matched the original bug: Text display is white with a
greyish/white drop shadow

I ran several follow-up tests using different slide designs in an attempt to
verify the original bug using different conditions:

1 - Select a different slide design (Characters with Glow) - drop shadow text
display of black/grey (main text color/drop shadow) in both sections.
* Save as .ppt file and open in PowerPoint.
* Analysis: This did NOT replicate the original bug - text displayed correctly.

2 - Next, select another different slide design (Lyt Ocean) - drop shadow text
display of black/grey in the header (white background), and white/black (blue
background) in the slide content area.
* Save as .ppt file and opened in PowerPoint.
* The header text displayed correctly BUT the slide content text displayed the
same drop shadow text bug - white/white.
* Analysis: This replicated the original bug in the slide content area.

3 - Select another different slide design (Lyt Sunrise) - drop shadow text
display of blue/black in the header, and black/grey in the slide content area
(tan background on entire slide).
* Save as .ppt file and opened in PowerPoint.
* The header text displayed incorrectly - blue/white.
* The slide content text displayed incorrectly - black/white.
* Analysis: This replicated the original bug in both areas.

4 - One last variant on the last test - Change the OO font to a common system
font (Arial) and resave it as .ppt file.
* Analysis: This replicated the original bug in both areas.

Conclusion: My evaluation is that this is a legitimate bug since I was able to
replicate it twice using different conditions. I suspect there may be a bug in
the color conversion codes where OOo reads these differently than PowerPoint
does.
