    Is this possible? I have a client who wants to show their stock price in addition to other information in a powerpoint presentation. Poking around it looks like powerpoint files are now nothing more than an xml file anyways? Never really used this program before. I have the RSS feed, just want to "stick" it in the presentation.

    In real time?? I dunno.

    If he just wants a snapshot, just maximize the screen, take a screen shot then paste in powerpoint.
