Subject Re: Problems serving PDF to Netscape browsers

Coincidentally ...

So better do a check again for IE as well. Don't be too sure that it will
work with *all* versions of IE on all flavours of windows. On some, I
couldn't see it at all, till we applied the latest critical patch for the
concerned windows...

IE 6 did not give any problems... but it was a different story for IE 5.5
and downwards...

Perhaps try fiddling with "check browser settings" option in Acrobat reader

Hope this was useful. :)

Btw, I would be very interested in your findings and results on this
Is it possible for you to share the info ?
