OK
Popup window? No problem
PDF in popup? No problem

But what about a couple of Close Window buttons?
Imagine a "Close Window" button at the top of the popup page.
Then the PDF which can scroll. And another "Close Window" button
at the bottom of the page.

Any suggestions for completing this task?

Will this help you; watch for word-wrap.

<html>
<head>
<title>popupPDF.htm</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
function popupPDF() {
var pdf = "http://www.google.com/";
var htm = "<html><head><title>popupPDF</title>";
htm += "</head><body>";
htm += "<a href='javascript:window.close()'>Close</a>";
htm += "<iframe src='" + pdf +"'></iframe>";
htm += "<a href='javascript:window.close()'>Close</a>";
htm += "</body></html>";
var win = window.open("","popupPDF","");
win.document.write(htm);
win.close;
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<a href="javascriptopupPDF()">Popup PDF</a>
</body>
</html>

You've asked for a "Close" button not a link:

<html>
<head>
<title>popupPDF.htm</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
function popupPDF() {
var pdf = "http://www.google.com/";
var htm = "<html><head><title>popupPDF</title>";
htm += "</head><body><center>";
htm += "<input type='button' value='Close'
onclick='window.close()'>";
htm += "<br><br>";
htm += "<iframe src='" + pdf +"'></iframe>";
htm += "<br><br>";
htm += "<input type='button' value='Close'
onclick='window.close()'>";
htm += "</center></body></html>";
var win = window.open("","popupPDF","");
win.document.write(htm);
win.close;
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<a href="javascriptopupPDF()">Popup PDF</a>
</body>
</html>

<a href="loadpdf.cgi?pdf=somefile.pdf"
target="_blank"
onclick="window.open(this.href, this.target,
'..attributes..');return false;"
>Open somefile.pdf in a new window (maybe, if you haven't

disabled that functionality on your browser)</a>

Then have loadpdf.cgi output (using an ASP example, you could use
PHP, or Perl, or JSP, or ColdFusion, or any other server-side
technology for this):

<html>
<head>
<title>Window containing <%= Request.Value('pdf') %></title>
</head>
<body>
<!-- your close buttons and stuff -->
<layer src="<%= Request.Value('pdf') %>"><iframe src="<%=
Request.Value('pdf') %>"></iframe></layer>
<!-- more buttons or whatever -->
</body>
</html>

You probably want some dimensions on the <layer> or <iframe> to make
it bigger than the default size. But remember, the window may not be
the size _you_ specify. Many browsers can honor your window.open()
request but still not provide a window the size, position and with
the chrome you requested.
