Offering a PDF Option for Your Pages
If you want to offer your site visitors a PDF of a page, PDFmyURL might be a good option. On the PDFmyURL site, click the "Advanced Options" (on the right), and you’ll learn how to pull off PDF production without even visiting the site, embed advanced options, and even run PDFmyURL from your own server.
Alternatively, I recently had very good success using mPDF to offer server-based PDF generation of pages on my Yookoso! site.
Turn any PDF into a Web-Friendly, Embeddable Flash eBook
Web site Issuu turns any PDF into a web-friendly, embeddable Flash eBook. Just upload the PDF to Issuu and it takes care of all the heavy lifting. When it’s done, the result is a flippable page-turner like what you see above. Some PDFs will work better than others for this sort of embedding, and for those pages with text that’s too small to read, clicking on the page will zoom in. It’s not the first online PDF viewer, but it may be the best looking—perfect for online zines or just sharing documents without sending big attachments.
