Is it possible to hyperlink to specific pages in a pdf file in a web browser? Even if the PDF file does have bookmarks in it?

There is a way to hyperlink directly to a page in a PDF. You append an open parameter to the end of the URL. For example, if I want to jump to page 24, the link would be

AcroJS_DesignerJS.pdf#page=24

Try the link below
partners.adobe.com...AcroJS_DesignerJS.pdf#page=24 [PDF: 549 KB]

Additionally you can specify parameters for zoom, showing bookmarks, or jumping to named destinations. This is fully documented at

Please note... there is a bug in IE for Acrobat/Reader 7.0.7. This works fine in FireFox. But the good news... The bug was fixed in 7.0.8, so you will want to get the patch.
