Hour 9. Adding Multimedia Files > Adding a Link to a PDF File

Adding a Link to a PDF File

So far, you've been embedding multimedia content into a Web page. You can also link to content that appears by itself. You link to multimedia files just like you would link to another Web page. If the multimedia file is within your defined Web site, you can use a document-relative URL. If the multimedia file is on another site, you must use an absolute URL.

The Adobe Acrobat Reader is a freely distributed player that has become the standard for viewing 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 plug-in is usually installed when the Reader application is installed.
