    I am trying to insert a PDF file into a web page in Expression Web and nothing is working. I can't find any reference to PDF files in the so-called Help that comes with the program, nor in the Que reference book on Using Expression Web. Anyone know how to do this???

    I am NOT sure but I think that you can only provide a LINK to a PDF file.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    The simplest way is to embed the PDF file using the following code:

    Code:
    <object data="test.pdf"
    	   width="640"
    	   height="480"
    	   type="application/pdf">
      my test pdf file
    </object>
    Have a look here for how this displays Example of embedded PDF file in action

    Thanks! works like a charm. I do need the PDF to come up in a separate window however, to avoid having the user scroll. Would you have a code snippet for that??? Thanks again.

    OK, here's the code I'm working with:



    MM-09-06</p>
    <object data="mm0906.pdf"
    type="application/pdf"


    </object>



    MM-09-07</p>
    <object data="mm0907.pdf"
    type="application/pdf"

    </object>



    E-09-09</p>
    <object data="e0909.pdf"
    type="application/pdf"

    </object>

    I'm posting several notices in sequence, and I would like each one to appear in its own page, since the web page in 1024x768 is too small to read them easily, and I don't want the user to have to scroll. Where does your new code go in this sequence? Thanks.

    OK

    Trying my best to accommodate you here. One little know syntax to use is this:

    No toolbar

    This syntax uses Adobe's inbuilt parameters to adapt the view of the pdf file and opens it within the browser window.
