Topic: Create a bookmark in a PDF file?
Conf: (P-PDF) What's Wrong with my PDF?, Msg: 171428

I am a volunteer webmaster for a genealogy site:

http://www.wordenfamilyassoc.org/patriots

In the area under "Wordens Past Reference Page" I want each
page to link back directly to the appropriate page number.

In the first case, I want the user to be taken directly to page
87, which is just one page in a newsletter that may start with
page 80 and go to page 94.

I know how to create bookmarks in html, and link back to html
bookmarks, but the newsletters are all pdf files.

Is there a way I can create some sort of link in a pdf file that
can be called by html?

I'm at a total loss as to how to do what I really want to do, or
if it can be done.

My only thought is to export each individual page (page 87 in
the first case) and just link to that page, but the user may
want to flip to page 86 and 88 to see what has been written
on other pages where the Patriot is discussed, so exporting a
particular page and linking back to that page really wouldn't
work.

I use Adobe Professional, v9.

Thank you for any help you can give me.

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
