Topic: PDF text manipulation from HTML javascript

Hi all,
I am new with PDF manipulation, I have spent 3 days surfing through internet trying to have an answer but it seems I am the first with this problem, here goes:

For a search engine I have to highlight contents (search terms) in a PDF document from a HTML page at client side with Javascript (it is a JSP but compiled is a HTML in the client side). How can I manipulate PDF text in order to set words with different background color?, Is it possible?

Another problem is that the PDF is charged in a frame dynamically, it means that I HTML page does not know which PDF is going to be loaded in its frame.


Thanks in advance!
