It is transparent, it is my understanding that PowerPoint doesn't  
properly support the transparency. It is amazing that after all these  
versions, the huge number of users, and the massive number of  
programmers working on PowerPoint that it is still such a crappy  
piece of software. I recommend using beamer (free) or Keynote (not  
free) if you can. Heck, even for sponsors who "require" PowerPoint, I  
can usually talk them into accepting a PDF.
