Add a Link to a PDF File

The Adobe Acrobat Reader is a freely distributed plugin that has become the standard for delivering formatted text files over the Web. PDF (portable digital format) files enable a viewer to see a file exactly as it was meant to be seen—fonts, page layout, and graphics appear predictably. You create PDF files with an application called Adobe Acrobat Distiller and view them with the Acrobat Reader. An Acrobat Reader plugin is usually installed when the Reader application is installed.

To display a PDF file you simply create a hyperlink with the URL to a PDF file. The file will open within the browser if the Acrobat plugin is present. If the plugin isn't installed but the Acrobat Reader is, the PDF file will open in the Acrobat Reader external to the browser. You can download the Acrobat Reader at http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep.html.
