    Yes, e.g.
    <a href="dig-breeds.ppt">dog breeds (PowerPoint presentation)</a>

    Whether visitors will be able and willing to open the link is a
    different matter. As a rule of thumb, if it is a useful file for use to
    support a presentation, it will fail miserably as a standalone
    presentation. And it works as standalone, it will belong to the 95% of
    all-crappy PowerPoint presentations.

    > Also is it possible to display a powerpoint presentation in a page ?


    Yes, using <iframe>, <object>, <frame>, <embed>, or maybe something
    else. This will add to the pointlessness factor.
