I'm trying your suggestion but I don't know how to "set the clipping 
path". Also, by "draw your text" you mean "content.showText(text);" or 
there is another function to draw it (the text will be a graphic on the 
PDF or will be added as text?).

Since the text is dynamic changing the font size is not an option :)
