You best bet is to 'redirect' to the pdf file i.e.
response.redirect "file.pdf"
Not everyone will have the ablility to read pdf files in their broiwser though...

PDF's use Adobe Reader via the browser, but it's independent and external.  Don't think you can do that...

You can't do that. You can only have one content type per request. You'll need to make link to the document.

<iframe name="pdf_file" src="registration.pdf" style="width:400px;height:300px;"></iframe>

will bring up the adobe acrobat reader within your page as an iframe.

@Sleepyhead_NO - yeah, thought of that earlier, but never tested.  Probably will work, but I hate frames... ;-)
