Thanks for the tip, but (having no interes in a bike shed discussion) is this a weakness in documentation or testing?
I'm sure MS intends PowerPoint's "Publish Package for CD" to be a feature, and I'm sure it works as intended. On the other hand, I'm sure most users expect any file created or modified with any software to work with the CD burner they use.
Special cases could (should?) be handled in documentation, while mismatches could (should?) be caught in testing. Couldn't (shouldn't) they? I think so, but . . .
