'' This sample loads the PDF file created by the Transforms sample,
'' finds all occurrences of a string in the loaded document,
'' and highlights these occurrences. Two points of interest about this sample:
'' - The texts in the original document are graphically transformed,
''   but the quadrilaterals supplied by the FindText method allows to easily
''   highlight the finds even in that case.
'' - The sample inserts a new content stream at index 0 of the page,
''   this ensures that the highlighting is drawn UNDER the original conent.
''   (The same approach may be used to add watermarks etc. to existing files.)
