Can someone tell me the html syntax to display a .pdf file on my web site?

RE: How to display a pdf file

Link to it the usual way.

<a href="myfile.pdf">Click here to open a pdf file</a>

RE: How to display a pdf file

If you want to show the PDF as part of the page, with other contents around it you could use frames and set the source of one of the frames to the PDF file. Check out http://adman.net/resume/frames.asp for an example of how it would work. Inline frames would also work.
