So is there no way to get a new Office 2008 ppsx file to display
correctly to a Mediawiki user?

What I want to do is have my internal users click on the ppsx link and
have it recognize it correctly and not as a text file.








No, because then MediaWiki won't let you upload the file because the 
system sees the ppt and xls files as msword mime type. The real problem 
is that all of those formats have the same magic number, so you have to 
do trickery. 

This may be different with older version of office, but the newer 
versions seem to do this.
