embedded pdf's in html

I should like to compose a template in CD that permits the delivery of a .pdf document on one half of a page and html links on the other.

I have tried using iframes but CD thinks that they are too complicated and will not show them in Normal View.

Does anybody have any suggestions?

Thank you in advance

Can you put the "half" in the normal view, and then just a link to the PDF file (magic name?) in one of the extra fields and build the page that way?

Citydesk doesn't show templates in normal view. You may use your extra fields to link to the pdf and trust that everything is ok during preview/publish....

thanks guys - I tried your suggestions - but all I get is a link to the pdf when the page is viewed in the browser.  I was hoping to configure it so that the html and the pdf loaded simultaneously into the page when it is requested by the browser.

I'll just have to keep experimenting.

Best regards
