I'm creating a PDF that contains text and i'm using the Td and Tj operators
to output the text.
I need to place the text 'Text1' at position 10,10 and 'Text2' at position
20,15 so i created thew following text stream

BT
10 10 Td
(Text1) Tj
20 15 Td
(Text2) Tj
ET

but the text2 displays in wrong position so i read the PDF Reference and
understood that Td parameters are offsets relative to the "Start of the Text
Line"(By the way how do i set the start of the line???).
So i rewritten the content as

BT
10 10 Td
(Text1) Tj
10 5 Td
(Text2) Tj
ET

but Reader displays it still wrong.

So i'm asking: is there a way to set the absolute position of the text
cursor?

I also tryed

BT
1 0 0 1 10 10 Tm
(Text1) Tj
1 0 0 1 20 15 Tm
(Text2) Tj
ET

but it doesn't works

Please Help
