In the previous chapters, we’ve created PDF documents by adding content to a page. It didn’t matter if we were adding high-level objects (e.g. a 'Paragraph') or low-level instructions (e.g. 'LineTo()', 'MoveTo()', 'Stroke'), iText converted everything to PDF syntax that was written to one or more content streams.
