How to include a pdf file in body of email, not as an attachment

How can I add a PDF file  (or a similar formatted text file) to the body of an email?  I am able to add it as an attachment, but not in the body of the email.
In searching for an answer, It was suggested to convert the file to a picture and then add the picture file to the email body.  If so, how do I do that?    
Would appreciate any help.

I'd just do html or attach a picture. You can't insert a picture or pdf/etc in an email body. Just html or attachment. And even then it's dependent on the email program. Some of them show the attachments automatically, other's don't. I'd go with html, that way you don't have to send a file.

I think you must add the "content-type: application/pdf" header. But really, I do not know if it works as expected.
