Hi Brian & Vendors,
Firstly, Vendors - hang on a minute, - people here are offering both time and experience to help you with a problem you have, chill.
Just for info:
Nokia and Opera Software have taken sides in the Adobe-Apple battle over Flash multimedia support: They are in the Flash camp.
On Thursday executives from Nokia, the world's largest maker of cell phones, and Opera Software, the maker of a leading mobile browser, said they'd support the new Flash 10.1 software that is coming out. Opera's co-founder Jon von Tetzchner was quoted as saying "It is the only proprietary part of the Web we support."
Getting these two companies on board, as well as Google's Android, which also supports the software, is a big win for Adobe Systems in its battle against Apple.
As regards the pdf, I suggested FlashPaper because it seemed that having embeded pdf was a definite requirement of Vendor's, and it was the first one to come to mind. I would not choose to use it myself, there are easier (and cheaper) ways of doing it (as well as recreating content in html, css, ajax etc with all their advantages) , Scribd being one of them. Another good one is Google docs Viewer - you just need to enter the link to your pdf (File-11.pdf#view=FitH,top&view=FitV,left&navpanes=0%22%20width=%22960%22%20height=%22760%22) and Google will generate the code for linking or embedding in to your site. This is an example that took two minutes to do, using the url of your online Pdf.
[Add] Would just like to add that the usefulness of embedding pdfs in web pages is bound to be seen by the designer/developer and the SME/Office communities in different lights: - as compatibility and standards compliance issues for one, and as a valid business tool for the other. It should make sense to a designer/developer too if the method of implementing it checks all the boxes (which the Googledocs seems to do for free).
