Topic: Content Stream Problems

I am expanding my XML export to also encapsulate actuial objects (text and paths) from the form (in addition to the form fields, which I have 100% working now). When I dump the content stream of one of my PDFs I get the following:

nnual percentage yield for your account is based \
upon a rate tier as follows:)Tj
/CS1 cs 1 scn
/GS1 gs
/TT2 1 Tf
0.0068 Tc -0.0685 Tw 6 0 0 6 72 27.48 Tm
[(Form TIERRA)67(TE \(Rev)87(. 02/2005 \) Digit)27(al Dimensions, Inc. Co-Pilot PlatFORMachine)]TJ
It seems to cut off a lot of the beginning.. any reason why. And also, is there ANY easier way to get the actuial contents of a page besides MANUALLY parsing that pdf code? I worry that if I take all the time to manually read that info, and PDF specs change, i'll have to re-code that section. [edit] I should also note that I am getting the contents from the Page, and yes, I check to see if its an array or not. Heres my code:

if (CosDictKnown(Page, ASAtomFromString("Contents")))
	CosObj Contents = CosDictGet(Page, ASAtomFromString("Contents"));
	if (CosObjGetType(Contents) == CosStream)
		// Single COS Stream
FoundContentStream(Contents); } else if (CosObjGetType(Contents) == CosArray) { // Array of COS Streams for ( int I = 0; I < CosArrayLength(Contents); I++ ) { FoundContentStream(CosArrayGet(Contents, I)); }; }; };
