Indeed, it's possible. It is, however, impractical if you have a lot of
links to put into the PDF. If you only have one or two, or if you want a
button that already has its own "back" or "forward" link, it's eminently
practical. It does, of course, require a knowledge of PDFMark coding, which
is available from Adobe's website.
