I want display a PDF as an html page, where the user will be allowed to enter the fillable data. My problem is not how to import/fill data (I was able to do it using FDF/XML data format). My only concern is how to show it to the user so that he/she can see the form, fill/edit data, and should be done with it.
I tried saving the PDF as an image file, and showing it as an background-image - but it was very crude! - I am hoping that there should be some elegant solution.
Thanks for you help!
