Here's an idea. Instead of linking directly to your PDFs, link to a
server-side script that opens them with a PDF component, reads them into
memory, sets the relevant option and streams the document to the

I haven't tested this, but it looks like in ABCpdf.NET you can use the
SetInfo method of the Doc object to set the default zoom of the current
page to 100%:

    "[ " + theDoc.Page.ToString()
    + " 0 R /XYZ null null 1 ]")

I've no idea how you'd do this in PHP, which I'm sure will be your next
question, but someone on here will know!
