I need to set up a print button in HTML that will print a certain PDF file, hopefully without having to download the file first.  I've tried a few things, including answers previously suggested here (e.g. https://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Scripting/JavaScript/Q_20655206.html and
https://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Scripting/JavaScript/Q_21528299.html ) -- but the best we get is something that works in IE only and I need it to be browser independent (as much as possible).   We're on Linux and have Javascript and PHP + ...  to work with.

Since these are OLD questions/answers (2003/1005), does anyone have any new ideas or ways that this could be done?
