Hey does anyone know if its possible to embed a multilayer PDF into a webpage with its interactivity still operating?

I've saved my arc10 file as a PDF with the layers on. What do I need to do next? Is it as simple as embedding any regular pdf or are there extra steps or some kind of plug in needed?

My page is made in Adobe Dreamweaver if that helps... I don't know much about web design and coding...

Actually... the browser is just handing the PDF over to whatever PDF reading application the client has installed. That's the one being used for viewing it, not the browser. If you really want to show your map inside the browser and offer (some of) the options a PDF reader has, your best bet is to look into Flash or HTML5.
