I'm having a weird problem with the Google Doc Embedder plugin. I'm using it mainly for the purpose of embedding PDF files, stored on a dedicated server in my office (yes, it's publicly accessible).
When I try to embed a file using the normal tag, the page shows nothing. Viewing the source shows this error:
<!-- GDE EMBED ERROR: retrieve error (200:OK), use force="1" to bypass this check -->
It works perfectly if I add the force tag, but since the documentation says not to use that except for debugging I'm a bit wary of it. Does it do any harm to use that as a general rule?
I have tested both with a PDF (~6MB) and a TIFF (~400kb) with the same results.
