public class: PDAppearance
This one took me a while, but i'm proud to say that it handles
the appearance of a textbox. This allows you to apply a value to
a field in the document and handle the appearance so that the

The problem was described by Ben Litchfield, the author of the
example: org.apache.pdfbox.examlpes.fdf.ImportFDF. So Ben, here is the
public PDAppearance(PDAcroForm theAcroForm,
PDVariableText field) throws IOException
Constructs a COSAppearnce from the given field.
theAcroForm - the acro form that this field is part of.
field - the field which you wish to control the appearance of
IOException - If there is an error creating the appearance.
