Topic: embedded pdf not displaying until mouse clicks it

I am trying to display a pdf within a certain area of a web page. To instantiate the pdf file in a browser, I am using the EMBED command:


[EMBED width=100% height=90% fullscreen=yes SRC="filename.pdf"]

(carrots (>) have been replaced with square brackets ([))

The pdf file is valid (I can open up the acrobat pdf in adobe acrobat); however, when this pdf is “embedded” in a web page, nothing initially shows up in my browser. There is just white space where there should be an embedded acrobat reader display of the pdf. If I use my mouse and click in the area where the pdf should appear, the embedded acrobat reader (with pdf) renders correctly.

If anyone else has experienced a phenomenon like this or has any suggestions about how to resolve this issue, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,
