      document.Pages.Add(new PDFPage(PDFPaperFormat.A4));
      PDFCanvas canvas = document.Pages[0].Canvas;

      PDFBrush brush = new PDFSolidBrush();

      PDFFont systemFont = new PDFFont("Arial", 12);
      canvas.DrawString("The system font.", systemFont, brush, 10, 60);

      PDFFont standardFont = new PDFFont(PDFStandardFont.TimesItalic, 12);
      canvas.DrawString("The standard font.", standardFont, brush, 10, 90);

      PDFFont fontFromFile = PDFFont.FromFile("..\\..\\symbol.ttf", 12);
