Displaying pdf & Word document on page.

What would be the best method to display PDF & Word documents on a particular page in WordPress.  The most important issue is that the horizontal navigation menu dropdown MUST open up on "top" of the displayed document.  Have tried iframe but from what I can see there is no way that you can get it to work in internet explorer.  Is there an easy plugin that might accomplish this?
Appreciate any help.

The problem with displaying anything other than HTML or web graphics inline is that the browser doesn't know how to handle them unless a plugin (such as Adobe Reader or MS Word) is supported, installed, and configured correctly.  Even then, as the user all I need to do is set the browser to directly download those file types and I have blown up your page.

The answer above mine links you to the Google docs embedded, which is one way to get around this.  Another, similar method would be to upload your stuff to scribd.com and embed iPaper versions.  This will require the browser have Flash or support HTML5, though.  Achieving 100% compatibility across all platforms is tough.

It's ironic, I had this plugin already installed but wasn't aware of the "settings" portion on the plugin.  It words like a charm.
