To download a PDF file via HTML, you can add a link to the PDF file on your website. Here's an example of how you can do this:

1
<a href="path_to_your_pdf_file.pdf" download>Download PDF</a>


In the above code snippet, replace "path_to_your_pdf_file.pdf" with the actual file path of your PDF file. The download attribute in the <a> tag will prompt the user to download the file when they click on the link.


Alternatively, you can also embed the PDF file on your website using the <embed> tag. Here's an example:

1
<embed src="path_to_your_pdf_file.pdf" width="800" height="600" type="application/pdf" />


Again, replace "path_to_your_pdf_file.pdf" with the actual file path of your PDF file. The width and height attributes in the <embed> tag determine the dimensions of the embedded PDF file on the webpage.


Remember to place the PDF file in the correct location on your server and adjust the file path accordingly in the HTML code.
