Don't know about either (except that frames are a no-no) I just wondered if this was the right line of thinking. This is a query relating to something I'm meant to be doing at work. Suppose I want to open up a pdf file on a webpage but don't want to lose the nav bar (so I can't open it up as a new window, cos you'd then have to hit X to close it; nor can I do it as another page cos you'd have to hit the back button) What is the best way to do it, please?

Hi mco. It should be achievable since PDFs can be opened in a browser window/tab, but I have never seen it done. Frames are so rare these days. If you can work out frames - I'll have to leave that to you! - then opening the PDF in an existing frame should be as easy as pie.

I know how to do it in frames, but I also know they are not considered best practice, so wondered if there was a better way.

I think frames would be the only way to keep the navigation in the same tab or window.
