    Embedding PDF and other files: IE 7 issues...

    Hello here,
    I have designed the following two pages that embed a PDF file and a music Sibelius file respectively:

    http://www.musicianspage.com/Apdf.html
    http://www.musicianspage.com/Asibelius.html

    They work great on Firefox latest version on both Mac and PC and on Safari on Mac. They don't display anything on IE 7 on PC. Any idea? The PC where I am testing displays them correctly on Firefox so I presume both needed plugins are installed correctly...

    Thank you in advance for any thoughts.

    Best,
    Fab.

    Give up this crazy idea! It makes your page incredibly slow to load even on a high speed connection. It is an abuse of the web in any event.

    Just stop.

    What are you talking about? I am sorry I don't understand... anyway, I solved the issue: I defined a relative size for the width and height of the embedded object (100%) and IE didn't like it. By changing them to absolute dimensions it works.

    ED: I'd really like to know more about your reported "slowness".

    Thanks!
