# [texhax] Problem with including a .pdf file

```what are you doing to `texify'?  what does it make?  a pdf, or a dvi?

I can't exactly remember what the rules are, but it might be you need to
use pdftex, as tex doesn't show the pdf image in the dvi itself.

i usually have to try a couple combinations to get it right.

hope this helps.
