Unsure what you mean by bad form. You must tell them that by simply uploading the .PDF to a given location — even if its made browser-convenient via some embedding method such as SlideShare — they are missing out on most of the points of having a site at all.

If all they want is a URL with that file at the end of it, then it's minimal effort and they'll have gotten what they insisted they wanted… Regards, Barney Carroll (+44) 742 9177 278 On 1 Sep 2011, at 19:05, Chris Dorer <cdorer at gmail.com> wrote: > IMO, I'd just whip up a quick SquareSpace site and hand it off. > > On Thu, Sep 1, 2011 at 1:58 PM, Matt Warden <mwarden at gmail.com> wrote: > >> On Thu, Sep 1, 2011 at 1:49 PM, Nan Harbison <nan at nanharbison.com> wrote: >>> Hi Folks, >>> >>> >>> >>> I have a client who wants the cheapest possible website, just to show the >>> apartments for rent in a very small building.
