Topic: Viewing PDF files with NS4xx in a online catalog

Hello (and apologise for qulaity of english, I'm french)
We developped a on-line catalog (you can see it at :
with various possibilities like find a product with reference, name, range to
which it belongs to, functions it realizes and so on...
The cybernaut can configure it with mechanical accessories, electrical
auxiliaries, put references in a basket and many other possibilities.
We propose a navigation in a PDF catalogue, wich is exactly like the paper
catalogues, our costumers have.
But infortunately, a cybernaut with MacOSwill see nothing.

If you are on Windows (no matter IE or Communicator), you see in the
menu bar below : catalogue papier (paper catalogue).
If you go, you have opportunities to navigate in PDF pages, as proposed in a
Windows-like menu on the left.
The problem is :
this runs with IE on Mac (but we have another problem while
selecting technical characteristics) and Communicator on Mac, but only the
first time.
We know the bogue with Communicator when opening PDF files in a frame. The
solution consists to clean out the frame before requesting a new PDF file.
So you can navigate in the PDF pages. No problem. But, if you resize the
opened window, Communicator does nothing and quits unexpectedly a few
seconds after.
For these reasons, an cybernaut on Mac has not access to the "paper
catalog". He sees nothing about.
Netscape and Adobe gave me a response on it.
Netscape : "Adobe Systems is aware of the problem and is working on a fix
for Acrobat Reader...Concerns, yashwant"
Adobe :" our engineer team is aware of this problem and works for a fix but
we have no dead-line".
Anyone have a comment ? or can suggests a way to obtain a solution, it will
be nice.
I am ready to put a lot of money.
Many thanks in advance
