What's the user-friendliest way to offer my site visitors access to various pdf files? I already have the link to Adobe's download page for those without Reader. Now I need to add functionality to my pdf document icon. The workaround I'm using is to spell out the process for saving a file to the user's hard drive, then launching Acrobat and reading the file locally (below). I'd like to be able to have the user clik the icon, launching Reader within the browser (in either the same window or a new one) and opening the linked pdf file automatically. At the very least, I'd like to have the user clik to receive prompts on how to open a pdf file. Can anyone help?
right clik on icon
choose "save (link) target as"
save to your hard drive
launch from there by double clicking the Acrobat icon (presuming you already have it)
if you don't have it, first download the free reader from the Adobe link
