If I click a libk to a PDF file then Internet Explorer shows it
within itself.

How can I get IE to show PDF files by launching Adobe Acrobat Reader
as a standalone application?

Change the appropriate preference in Adobe Acrobat.
It is (naturally) controlled by the Adobe Acrobat application.

gitte,
I saw a similar construct to the one you used here in a Microsoft KB, and I
couldn't understand it.

What I refer to is: <a href="./the pdf-fil.pdf" target="_blank">

Usually, I understand that the name in quotes after href= shoudl be a
filename.

What are the characters ./ (dot and slash) before the filename for?
Do they mean "go to this directory and then find the file in this directory"
?
In other words, a file on the current directory?

If so, aren't they redundant?
If not , what do they mean?

Specifically, in Adobe Reader or full version, go to Edit>Preferences, click
"internet" on the left and deselect "show pdf in browser".
