Hyperlink to Specific Page of PDF

I was recently posed with the question of whether or not you could hyperlink (yeah, I’m using the term as a verb) to a specific page of a PDF. In looking around, I am under the impression this can be done if the PDF resides on a web server by adding “#page=2″ to the hyperlink (for Page 2, that is).

http://foo.com/file.pdf#page=2

nule mentioned this might be browser specific, but I have not run into that.

The situation becomes more complicated if the hyperlink points to a PDF residing on a mapped network drive, etc. I have read of solutions involving VBA scripts for this particular case, though I did not delve into it (nor do I intend to).
