>I have a couple questions regarding Adobe Reader and PDFs.

>My second question is about techniques. It's been a long time so I don't

>Basically, I was looking at a prototype that displays a PDF for the user.
>However, if the user has disabled the viewing of PDFs in the browser window,

>the technique that would allow the PDF to be viewed either in the browser
>window or in Reader?
