    I have the MobileMe service and I am wondering how I can post a PDF and then send people a link and have it open in their browser. Is iWeb the best way to do this or what? I just want to be able to post a link and then have them click on it and the PDF open. Sorry this must be incredibly basic/easy but I cannot figure out how to make it just work.

    Thanks.

    Put it in the Public folder of your iDisk. Then just send them the filepath, for example:

    idisk.me.com/username/Public/file.pdf

    Is there a way to make it so that the PDF opens in the browser instead of automatically downloading the file?

    Yes. Move the file to the Sites folder and use the following URL:

    Try viewing a PDF file from a different Web server. To determine if there's problem with the server to which you're connecting, try to open a PDF file from Adobe's Web site at www.adobe.com. Adobe's Web server is configured to let your browser connect to PDF files. If the Acrobat viewer can display PDF files from Adobe's Web site, but not from another site, the other site's server may not be configured correctly (e.g., it uses server software that doesn't support byte serving).
