Assuming that you've created your PDF and uploaded it to your web server...

Simply point a hyperlink to the location of the PDF file on your server.
E.g. if you've placed a PDF file named 'info.pdf' in the root folder on your
site, the href would be (or you could use
relative addressing if you like).

If your readers are using a Reader plug-in supported browser then clicking
on this link will open the PDF in their browser window (from which they can
click the 'Save' icon to save the PDF file to disk, or just choose to read
the PDF in their browser). However, if they want to save the PDF to their
hard drive straight away, they can right click on the link and choose 'Save
target as...' without having the PDF being opened in the browser first.

Hope this helps...
