I learned something new today. A client of mine wants to showcase his resume on a webpage and since I had never done this before I did a lil research and found this article:
“How to embed a PDF document into HTML web page
It’s a great way of converting propriety documents (excel, word etc.) into a easily viewable/exchangable format.
Putting PDFs into web pages is increasing popular – you can view documents as they should appear with images and text formatted as the author intended.
So.. how do you embed a pdf into a web page?
The simple way is to use the standards-compliant “object” element, and looks like this:
< object data="myfile.pdf" type="application/pdf" width="100%" height="100%" > < p >It appears you don't have a PDF plugin for this browser. No biggie... you can < a href="myfile.pdf" >click here to download the PDF file.< /a >< /p > < /object >
You can then style the div that this object goes in so that it fits with the size and layout of your website.
