Inline PDFs etc in Safari

I posted an article last August about Safari supporting SVG, and someone said to try an inline object tag to view it. So I'm trying it out. It seems to work in Safari. If you are seeing “Reid News” in big black italic text to the right then it is working for you, too.
The reason I bring this up now is that there is an article on MacSlash today that talks about Safari support for inline PDFs, PSDs, and any other file format that QuickTime supports. Interesting, but ultimately it won't go anywhere because 97% of the world is stuck with IE/Windows, which doesn't even handle inline PNGs properly!

    Hm, it doesn’t seem to support transparency though.

    Martin Schubert wrote a PDF (and an MS-Word) plugin for Safari. Find them here:
