--- Comment #9 from Michael <vea1083@yahoo.com> ---
(In reply to comment #4)
> 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.

Thanks Jim for confirming this long standing bug!
