The simplest method to open a pdf is to write the pdf to a server then send
the URI of the pdf to the emulator via an escape sequence. For example, to
open a pdf in your browser using ftp using Netterm: CRT
CHAR(27):'[]ftp://user:[EMAIL PROTECTED]/invoice12345.pdf':CHAR(27):'[0*'

My personal preference for emulators is Netterm. http://securenetterm.com.
It supports the ability to open URIs, kick off programs on the client as
well as more sophisticated functions. It's free to evaluate (with no expiry
time) and if you decide you want to buy it it's about US$30 for 1 and gets
cheaper by the dozen.
