I'm wondering what options are available, to allow embedding of (attached) PDF documents directly in a page.
I came across this thread, which uses an iFrame to embed the document which is then rendered by the browser's PDF viewer.
This works - but isn't completely "slick" - there are various tab bars, and other panes open by default in the viewer so there's lots of gubbins around the PDF document. It would be nice to just show the document with minimal navigation tools. I guess since the PDF viewer is something setup individually on user's PCs, there is no way of specifying display options for the viewer ?
Are there any other options for doing this ?
I did briefly look at Scribd - but unfortunately it's a site that's blocked by our corporate IT department, so that's a non-starter. I also got the impression from this page that it's not really being supported anyway (someone correct me if I'm wrong!).
So - are there any other methods of displaying attached PDFs directly in the page, that I haven't thought of ?
Thanks for any thoughts.
