The link as I first described it will not go to another page, but straight to the file of interest. When I did this as a test, the original copy of my pdf was on my desktop. When I exported the iWeb page, it must have copied it and created the proper link.

In Safari a normal click will load the pdf into the browser window because Safari has a way to display it. Other browsers often have the ability too. People can right click on the link to load it to their home machine.

There supposedly is a way to force a download, but I haven't researched that enough to get it to work and it seemed that some browsers hadn't a clue. I perhaps didn't understand it well enough to coax them right. Maybe you can get Dreamweaver to create that html and script and use iWeb Enhancer to insert the code. I've not used either of those tools.

Give it a try on a basic iWeb page. Instead of text, you might be able to use a graphic too as the link.
