    Dynamic PDF script

    Hello everyone,
    I was wondering if someone could help me find a script for a dynamic pdf. At least I think that is the right terminology. I am looking to create a link to a PDF but instead of asking the user to download the document first I want them to be able to click on it and it comes up in another window, without them having to save it to their computer first. I am an inexperienced designer/developer, so please explain in very simple terms. Thank you in advance for your help.

    It has to save to their computer first before a web browser can display it.

    If they have the PDF plugin installed in their browser then it will automatically display in the browser unless you force it to download only. Without the plugin the browser can't display it.
