Is it possible to link to a bookmark within a PDF using URL parameters?

When providing a link to a PDF file on a website, is it possible to include information in the URL (request parameters) which will make the PDF browser plugin (if used) jump to a particular bookmark instead of just opening at the beginning?
Something like: http://www.somehost.com/user-guide.pdf?bookmark=chapter3 ?
If not a bookmark, would it be possible to go to a particular page?
I’m assuming that if there is an answer it may be specific to Adobe’s PDF reader plugin or something, and may have version limitations, but I’m mostly interested in whether the technique exists at all.
