Document embedding in websites

I’ve been using Scribd for some time now and wanted an embedded viewer for my blog. Scribd does now have that option to embed or the new Quick Switch which can convert all documents on your site into iPaper links. Recently I happened to come across Issuu which is also a document sharing site much like Scribd. It also has the same feature as iPaper, but the interface seemed to be a lot better. All you have to do is add some javascript code into your html pages and .doc’s, .pdf’s, .ppt’s will automatically be uploaded and will be viewable from within your site.

Here’s some examples. No more downloading of pdf’s and doc’s.

doc HPC Basic Profile.doc

pdf JBoss AS Clustering.pdf

Update: This won’t work from your RSS readers. So go on to the website to actually see it.
