Hi Eric

Check the configuration mimetypes_embed, andmimetypes_xss_protect and
see this page: http://moinmo.in/HelpOnMacros/EmbedObject

Be aware that emending a proprietary software like powerpoint is no
guarantee that it works with all browser/os. Even the embedded pdf
documents gives me sometimes a pain-in-the-ass and the need to
close/restart my browser, because of that buggie pdf plugins....

I had once the problem that an apache server doesn't know the correct
mimetype and because I couldn't change this on the apache, I had to add
the correct filetype into the wikiutil.py directly (search for "mimetype
support"). but that's pity, because with every update you will loose
this stuff and need to redo/patch it.
