This article explains how to display Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files in your Web pages in Microsoft FrontPage.
To create Web pages that contain .pdf files, you must first import the .pdf files to your Web. Then, create hyperlinks to the .pdf files on your Web pages. When a visitor to your Web site clicks a hyperlink to a .pdf file, Adobe Acrobat Reader opens in the visitor's browser window and displays the .pdf file.
Visitors to your site must have Acrobat Reader installed on their computers to display the .pdf file in their browser windows. It is recommended that you add a second hyperlink on your page to point to the location at which users can download the latest version of Acrobat Reader. Adobe Systems, Inc., offers a Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) version of the Get Acrobat Reader logo that you can download, insert into your Web pages, and then set as a hyperlink to the Adobe Web site. Position this hyperlink next to the hyperlink to the .pdf file. When users click the logo, the Adobe Web site is displayed in their browser windows, and they can then download Acrobat Reader.
