Topic: Overwriting text on PDF page

I am writing a set of PDF API functions that allows a portion of a page to be overwritten by text from some other PDF file.

e.g. Assume that I have 2 PDF files, A (30 pages) and B (1 page). Text from PDF file B has to be overwritten on lower left corner of page 1 of PDF file A.
File B has English and Japanese text. I have successfully done most of the work. The problem is that the Japanese text appears as junk characters whereas the english text appears fine.

I have appended all the required information from PDF file B to File A.

Also, can anybody confim if /Contents tag in PDF can hold information for multiple texts i.e.
is /Contents [5 0 R 23 0 R] OK or not.
