Use DocumentBuilder to save and extract the current character formatting in the stack
within C# and VB.NET.


   To save the current character formatting in the stack, use the DocumentBuilderPushCharacterFormat method. To extract character formatting that was previously saved in the stack, use the DocumentBuilderPopCharacterFormat method.
