    <a href="filename.pdf"></a> That will work.

    For example: - Tag Rugby League has a pdf link for sponsorship package.

    Hope it helps.

    In firefox you need to define which component has to be directly opened and which is to be saved...

    for this just do the following:

    1: Open your firefox
    2: Go to Tools >> Options >> Applications

    Here you need to define the action that needs to be performed... as you want to save the file or directly open it in to acrobat reader.

    Hope this helps...

    Thanks Guys but I still cannot get this to work!

    Chris Taylor suggests a system, but that presupposes that the pdf is in a website somewhere rather than simply stored on my computer?

    Hi
    I have been around your kind of situation for while... Use the <embed> tag to insert your pdf file, try the following example:

    "<object type="application/pdf" data="YourFile.pdf" " width="90%" height="90%" < >/object >"

    To provide alternative if the viewer browser doesn’t support the <embed> tag include a link like the following example:

    "<object type="application/pdf" data="YourFile.pdf" " width="90%" height="90%" <a href="YourFile.pdf" alt="short description of your file here" >/object >"

    Am not good at this because i am more inclined into ASP.NET but it works for me and i hope it help.

    Thanks for the info on how to embed .pdf files into an HTML document. Both methods worked; however, the HTML document will no longer scroll using the scroll wheel, with either suggested method.

    Is this normal?

    Converting a PDF to HTML with Some PDF to Html Converter eliminates the problem Web browsers have of locking up and crashing when attempting to display a PDF file inside the browser window. It does NOT need Adobe Acrobat software. It processes at very high speed and you can convert multiple PDF files to Html files at one time.

    1、 Import PDF files for conversion .Drag your PDF files into the program
    2、 selected PDF files to select an output format for the exported document. Youcyou can select “HTML Document(html)” from the format list.
    3、click the “convert” button to PDF to HTML conversion will be finish in seconds, you can view the target HTML web by click the “H” icon.

    No, that just links to the file. To embed it into the page you can use <embed src=\"filename.pdf\" width=\"500\" height=\"400\"> but it doesn't have the same look on different browsers and operating systems.

    As a solution, listen what D3rek said, try using scribd or some other online PDF storing website and embed their code into your page.

    EDIT: you can also use iframes, but i tend not to use them <iframe src = path-to-your-file-and-extension width=500 height=400 ></iframe>

    EDIT 2: then create a page which links to the pages where you embeded your PDF :)

    Upload the PDF file to your web site. Then add a link in your HTML document like this:
    <a href="application.pdf">
    Click here for Application
    </a>

    For the purpose of insert PDF on any website then you may certainly use this command to do that....... <EMBED src="example1.pdf" width="444" height="345"></EMBED> This will really help you regarding this matter.....

    in some browsers you can connect pdf to html via href process. but in some cases if that did not work the you have to use the converter to make the thing.

    If you don't wanna trouble yourselves very much then simply use one of the online pdf to html conversion tools. They work just fine. Or maybe just for me, since I am a non technical person.
