can your browser display a pdf?
yes - my browser can display a .pdf.
The pdf DOES open when I use the 'navigateToURL' method - but not the ExternalInterface.call (window.open....)
maybe you have a popup blocker that won't allow a pdf but allows html. in any case, if that code (screwy though it is) will open an html file, it will open a pdf file.
I agree - that code - if it opens an html should open a pdf - but it doesn't. And I don't know why..
Why is the code screwy? Could I do it better another way?
