    Hey there, on my current website, I want to have a link to an e-book that users can download. I'm uploading the e-book to my own server and such, and am just not sure how to set up the link.
    Thanks,
    Mark.

    <a href="http://www.yourdomain.com/ebook.pdf">My eBook</a>

    It will either open it and they can save it or they can right click and select save.

    No problem if your site is being xhtml compliant then leave the link as is.

    If you are not to concerned then you might want to make it open in a new window by adding target="_blank"

    <a href="http://www.yourdomain.com/ebook.pdf" target="_blank">My eBook</a>

    This way they can still browse your page while they wait for the PDF to open in the new window. Prob should of added that to the original post, but only just thought of it.
