The characters could (at least partly) be unprintable characters. If you're using DoumentInputStream to get ta byte[], then there is not much point in using POI, is there? You could just as well use the java.io package. The way to extract text from a doc file using POI is documented here.

According to the HWPF Overview:

HWPF is still in early development. It is in the scratchpad section of the SVN. You will need to ensure you either have a recent SVN checkout, or a recent SVN nightly build (including the scratchpad jar!)

so there is no JAR to download. You have to get the source and build it.
