Topic: Linking PDF in html doc

I have a question I hope someone can help me with. I am trying to link to a pdf file from an html webpage and am recieving an eror message to the effect of "expected .dict object".

This is a large (8mb) file with 8 pages, multiple images accounting for large file size.

As an example I have the url in the html file as follows:

I have seen other webpages link this way with no problem. What am I doing wrong?

Is this a problem with large file size? Multiple pages? Or how the document was saved originally, ie security settings etc. I do not know how this pdf was saved or what parameters are involved nor am I familiar with this Adobe product. This is for a client's website that I help with and they saved the pdf and e-mailed it to me.

Any help is very much appreciated. TIA!
