Open PDF

Hi

I have just succeeded in opening a link in an external browser, but now I
wonder how I can manage to open a PDF file in Acrobat Reader (or associated
software) when klicking on a link in Javahelp?
(I do not want to open a HTML-page first that includes the PDF-file!)

I have a link like: Klick here

My guess is add some smarts to the code that opened the external browser
to handle that.
