When PDF files are displayed in a Web browser’s window, there are two distinct variants:
The Web server sends a PDF file after a specific URL is typed in or called by a link. The Acrobat plugin processes the PDF data, takes control of the browser window, and displays the document in the window. Acrobat’s toolbar appears under the browser’s toolbar.
Part of an HTML page contains a PDF document (or several PDF documents). The PDF data is not directly embedded in the document, but is called by reference to a separate file (see Figure 8.1). This variant requires the use of special HTML tags.
