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.
