    I have a presentation that links to an html file that is in the same folder.
    When the user clicks the presentation and click open, the link works fine,
    but when the user clicks save (to desktop or whereever) and then opens the
    file...the link to the html page doesn't work.

    For some reason, even if I save the link as http://whatever/coolpage.htm
    The link changes to ../coolpage.htm so when the user saves and opens the
    file the link tries to go to C:\documents and settings\user\coolpage.htm
    which doesn't exist.

    How can keep the url from changing to the relative path?

    If you write code in VBA, this problem might get solved.
    ActionSettings(ppMouseClick).Hyperlink.Address =
    "http://whatever/coolpage.htm"
