This maybe a silly question, but is the only way to display a pdf file on the web through a plug-in? with <embed scr.....> tag or is there another way?
Thanks for any help.

I have found (not used pdfs a lot) that the browser does not seem to let you embed inside the page very easilt.
Probably the best way is to use an iframe or a frame and link directly to the pdf in there.

As far as I know, if you link to a PDF, and the user has adobe acrobat installed, it will open in the browser...
I.E. the acrobat interface opens in IE, and it looks like it's part of your browser..
God I hate this feature of PDF's, it pisses me off..

The user will see PDF if he/she has Adobe Acrobat Reader installed so you loose many of them. I advice to change your PDF to, say, JPG that can be seen by everyone. To make the change you can use some of software, i.e. ReaConverter Pro from: http://www.reasoft.com/products/reaconverter/
