Is there a way to open Adobe Acrobat program from a web page by just clicking on a button on the web page. (Almost like open Acrobat from a shortcut on your desktop.)

We have an application on one of our web pages where this would be very useful. We are using a standard html page.

Any input would be greatly appreceated.
Thank you...

    Is this for internal (Intranet) or external (Internet) use?
