Pierre Olivier discussed the technique some months ago on this list, and
has a web page that describes it. I forget the URL, but you'll find it
quickly with a Google.com search for "pdftodig". There's also a little
script that implements the same capability in xpdf, for locating the right
page. The technique involves using a cgi script URL in the anchor tag,
with the cgi script spitting out some XML for Acrobat.
