PDF is one format, HTML is another. You cannot embed PDF directly into HTML.
You can try playing with iframes where you would be displaying an iframe in the div. The target of the iframe would be a URL pointing to the PDF.

See live example here http://blogs.adobe.com/pdfdevjunkie/2007/08/using_the_html_embed_tag_to_di.html
Naturally you cannot display the content of a local file to the external web user as the file is local !
Either it needs to be placed into a location available to the web server or you will need a servlet reading the content of the file and streaming it to the client. The URL in this case will be that of the servlet.
