    Option
    Description
    Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 or later (high fidelity) This option allows your presentation to be viewed only by the later versions of Internet Explorer. This option also enables the viewer to resize the window and view the presentation in the Slide Show view (i.e., full screen); however, fewer people will be able to view your presentation in this format.
    Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0, Netscape Navigator 3.0, or later This option allows your presentation to be viewed by most versions of Internet Explorer and Netscape. This option does not allow the viewer to resize the window or view the presentation in the Slide Show view; however, more people will be able to view the presentation.
    All browsers listed above (creates larger files) This option combines the previous two. If the user's browser is able to display advanced features, they will be displayed.
