Hello everyone. I have a question.

A client of mine has asked me to take their annual report, which is in
PDF format, and create a navigable and searchable presentation of it
on the web. She gave me a few examples of something another
company did, that she would like for me to do for her: (click on 2001 AR) (click on 2001 AR) (click on 2001 AR)

After looking at any of these, does anyone know how they are
implementing this search capability on the web? Is it a CGI or Perl
script in the background? And how would it index the contents of the
pages? Or does Acrobat have this capability somehow? Help!!

Any and all help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I am
up against a wall on this. I have worked with Acrobat offline quite a
bit, but I'm not certain of the best way to integrate PDF documents
into a website.
