And now for a different question:

I have the need to convert some charts from Powerpoint, Word & Excel into PNG files for posting to a web site.  I've found this approach to be the easiest method on my Mac:

- open the word/ppt/excel file
- zoom in to get the chart to the size I want
- Press cmd-shift-4 to turn cursor into a cross-hair.  Drag the cross-hair over the chart while holding down the shift key, when I let go it automatically generates a PNG file of what i've highlighted.

Is there an equivalent application/function for Windows XP?

I don't think there is anything that easy for xp (at least not that I've come across) thus I always use my mac like you mentioned.
