I am having issue reading some things in my iPad. (PDF's)

Example... the following link I can see fine in my PC but not on my iPad or iPhone.

This may have to do with the page you're viewing.

Keep in mind Desktop browsers have unlimited memory + CPU to play with... well, basically unlimited.

Mobile devices tend to have tight constraints. Because of these constraints, error recovery for parse errors is limited. shows this page to be producing horribly broken HTML.

There's nothing you can do to fix someone else's broken HTML.

Best option, when you hit a page like this on a mobile, email the link to yourself + view it on a desktop machine, with a heavy browser like Chrome or FireFox.

This has NOTHING to do with iOS reading PDFs.  Instead this is an issue with the Web Page you're viewing not being particularly compatible with Safari Browser on iOS.
The page you've provided uses some javascript and an embedded object code to display the PDF .. and this code isn't compatible with Safari on iOS.
You've 2 options.
If you are the developer of the website or know the developer get them to use more mobile-friendly javascript and code to display the PDF
Provide a direct Hyperlink to the PDF which will also work in ANY browser so that the user can click and view the PDF directly

Eoin makes a good point. If this is a site you own, best fix all the HTML errors (if you expect your site to work with iOS) + also fix the Javascript Eoin mentioned.

If this is someone else's site, then you can pass on a list of problems + fixes for them to implement or your can take my suggestion + email pages like this to yourself + view them on a Desktop machine.

I have also read the web page on an Android phone and it shows a link to the actual PDF file and I can download the PDF file.

When I tried to load the web page on iPhone 5, it does show part of the PDF file but the PDF file will disappear when the web page has been fully loaded.

I have tried with about 5 browsers apps on iOS on iPhone and none of them can view your PDF file.

In short, embedded PDF will not work on cross platforms and it is better to display a link to the PDF on your web page if you are the webmaster.
