    page.Elements.Add( new Label( "Hello World!", 0, 0, 100, 12, Font.Helvetica, 12 ) );
    document.Pages.Add( page );
    document.DrawToWeb();
    
    Dim document As Document = New Document()
    Dim page As ceTe.DynamicPDF.Page = New ceTe.DynamicPDF.Page()
    page.Elements.Add(New Label("Hello World!", 0, 0, 100, 12, Font.Helvetica, 12))
    document.Pages.Add(page)
    document.DrawToWeb()
