Hi :)
The link i gave was the old one
it's still useful but this is the newer one
which is carefully "dumbed down" to make it easier but less flexible.  

You could start a bug-report with nothing more than a subject-line and a quick comment, just like a 
normal email.  The triagers would probably be a little more specific about the reports that they 
would find useful for that particular bug.  The guides are a bit generic and try to cover a wide 
range of different cases.  Logs, reports and attachments can be added later.  It just helps to try 
to get as much together as reasonably possible to start with so that the triagers don't get bogged 

I agree about the fonts.  On Gnu&Linux i usually install a single package called something like "MS 
Core Fonts" which includes Arial and Times New Roman.  As an aside I think it's also got Comic 
Sans, Verdana and Trebuchet and a couple of others but that is not the issue.  I have to agree to 
an MS EULA to be allowed to install the package.  All Windows machines i have known of have Times 
New Roman and Arial.  

Regards from
Tom :)

Well, having had your little spat I see we have got back to suggestions as to
what I might do about my problem.

Bear in mind I am new to this game. There is a suggestion of reporting a
"bug". I realise there is a link for that, but what is the best way? Should
I include a sample of a Ppt conversion (and vice versa) with examples of the
problems, or just list them.

Incidentally, there has been some comment about the 'different fonts on
different machines'. I am using Times New Roman (plain and bold) and as far
as I know that is available on any Windows machine, so presumably that is
not causing the problem.

Thank you for the feedback.
First register, then log-in and give a short description of your problem. Submit the report and 
finally attach the .ppt in question.
Don't hold your breath. This type of conversion flaws is a never ending story because of the 
special ways how MS software interacts with their own specific file formats. This is supposed to be 
incompatible with anything else. That's how they run their big business.


P.S.: I forgot to mention another solution which adds full ODF compatibility to MS Office:
