before last paragraph

This should be added as a Note after the second to last paragraph: NOTE: Technically, you <ital>can</ital> create a PDF with audio and transitions using Elements Custom Slide Show tool. But in order to view it, you need Adobe Reader 6.0 or later with the Windows Media Plug-in. Alas, the Windows Media Plug-in is for Windows only, so you're still creating a file that not everyone (Mac owners, for instance) can view.
