Hi all,

I have two questions one is concerning a text markup annotation the
other how to create an annotation that opens a web link in IE.

1. Markup Annotation

I have a problem programming a markup annotation. Maybe I do not
understand in the right way what the pdf-specification says. My problem is the
/QuadPoints key. What does that mean. The way understand this key,
is that I calculate the 4 corners of the text I want to markup.

If I do so, the text is filled with a kind of two circular arcs.
(see the attachment)

But the coordinates of /QuadPoints describe a rectangular area.

4 0 obj
/Type /Annot
/Subtype /Highlight
/Contents (Test)
/C [0.5 0.5 0.5]
/T (Camando Test)
/CA 0.5
/QuadPoints [ 66 568 203 568 203 608 66 608 ]
/Rect [203 568 66 608 ]

2. Annotation that opens a web link in IE

Is it done by a link annotation in combination with
an uri action ? Like in the following example ?

9 0 obj
/Type /Annot
/Subtype /Link
/Rect [ 66 368 203 408 ]
/BS <</Type /Border /W 1 /S /U>>
/A <<
/Type /Action
