Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Specify font settings that the document builder will apply to any text that it inserts.
builder.Font.Name = "Courier New";
builder.Font.LocaleId = new CultureInfo("en-US", false).LCID;

// Name "FarEast" equivalents for our font and locale.
// If the builder inserts Asian characters with this Font configuration, then each run that contains
// these characters will display them using the "FarEast" font/locale instead of the default.
// This could be useful when a western font does not have ideal representations for Asian characters.
builder.Font.NameFarEast = "SimSun";
builder.Font.LocaleIdFarEast = new CultureInfo("zh-CN", false).LCID;

// This text will be displayed in the default font/locale.
builder.Writeln("Hello world!");

// Since these are Asian characters, this run will apply our "FarEast" font/locale equivalents.
