Jesper,
  
  In keeping with UAAG Guideline 5 ("Ensure user control of user interface 
behavior"), the user should be able to control whether the PDF file opens in 
the browser or in a separate window. There is a preference in Adobe Reader, in 
the Internet options, that controls whether or not to display a PDF in the 
browser. I think it is an accessibility error for the author to override that 
preference.
