Web Page to Detect Acrobat or Reader Version


If you’ve been reading my series on PDF Portfolios and Backward Compatibility, you’ll know that there are several methods for ensuring a good experience for both users of earlier versions of Acrobat or Reader and for users who have upgraded to version 9. The simple PDF file on the right can be used in the simplest cases when you want users to actually decide for themselves if they want to upgrade or not. The PDF is a one page file and I’ve used the embed tag to place it on this page.You can download it and look at the JavaScripts to see how it works.
