Hey, thanks to you and Rene for the tip -- it's working great so far!

One weird thing: if I make a presentation in OpenOffice, and then play
it back on a Windows machine using the free MS PowerPoint Viewer, the
bullets show up as boxes (i.e. looks like an unknown glyph or
something).  I haven't really fiddled around much yet, but if there's
a quick & easy answer for this I'm all ears...
