This is not a real "answer," but thought some folks might like to see a very nice "clean" site done with iWeb (confirmed by looking at the web address & source code).

There are some pdf links on the Welcome page, but I don't have iWeb, so can't tell you the process.

When you say attached, do you mean create a link to the PDF? Do you have .Mac?

To do that, save your PDF in your Sites folder in your iDisk. You can then link to it with a URL something like: http://homepage.mac.com/yourscreenname/Sites/nameofpdf.pdf Of course this is not an actual link. This gives you a viewable PDF.

You can use the Inspector to create a link to it as an external page (viewable) or you can use it to create a link to a file (actual PDF).

OK, so I was wrong. Using the first method, you can also download the file by holding the Option key. Both ways are pretty much the same.

You can also create a link to automatically download the file. I used that on this site: http://aodreamwest08.org for the brochure and registration form.

To make the boxes, simply make a Shape, highlight it and in the Inspector use the Graphic menu. Under Stroke, choose Picture Frame. There are several and you can change the thickness and color. I just picked one that looked Western and used an appropriate fill color.

Have fun. Let me know if you have any trouble.

A change in subject, but wondering:
Has anybody had any experience with the program Rapidweaver? ($49)

Adobe has announced they are not continuing GoLive. They're offering Dreamweaver upgrades for $199 to GL users, but I shudder at having to learn another daunting program for a relatively simple site.

http://www.realmacsoftware.com/rapidweaver/

Don't have iWeb, and the other apps in iLife 08 are getting dreadful comments. Is it worth it for iWeb only? Can iWeb sites be uploaded now to other hosting services? - Mine is much cheaper than .mac, and has served me well for quite a few years.
