Well, my browser can display a pdf from another site just fine. I'm just having trouble writing the code to put a pdf in a site of my own.

find a link where it works and view the source on it and if it has anything special in it, then that is probably what does it,

but i know if im in ff, i can get pdfs to open up in the window because i have a plugin installed, without that plugin it will download them.

so, see if it has anything special in the link, if it does and you dont understand it, someone here probably will.

Ok, I've tried to view source on couple of these and I get some kind of code that does not resemble html, javascript, or anything web related I've seen? Which I could probably paste this code into a .html file and get the results I'm looking for, but I can't seem to view this source on a file that's not already on the web. Does anyone know how to view the source of a pdf file that's local to your machine?

how about you just go to that link, view the source and copy and paste it here and see if someone can decipher it.

That URI references an actual PDF file. Whether or not it will display in your browser is dependent upon your browser's file handling settings and whether or not a PDF plug-in is installed. For example, I ignore the plug-in and have PDF files set to download then automatically open in Acrobat Professional. You apparently have PDF files set to utilize a plug-in and display from within the browser (the default behavior of the Adobe plug-in).

If you want to display PDF documents inline, try the HTML object element. It seems to work even in Internet Explorer. A demonstration: http://jsg.byethost4...demos/DIC19369/.
