Topic: Re: No Topic (but should be: embedding PDF files in an ASP)

The ASP as written, looks like it starts to load Reader plugin, but goes
right on by, not displaying any PDF, so I end up with a blank page and the
name of the file(s)(Netscape 5.0 ) or blank squares where the PDF(s) should
be and the name of the file(s)(IE5).

My thought is that the ASP should transfer control over to HTML or 'pause'
in some way so the ASP will display the PDF before it 'moves on' to other
things as it does now.
