Under X I can drag my mouse over the _text_ in a pdf file.  Then in an
xemacs window I can double click and the text is pasted in there.  (A
very useful facility.)

How come ?  Surely the text in the pdf file is not ascii ?  Surely
even the text is stored as a "graphic" in the pdf file ?

I am obviously misunderstanding something.
