Guessing. In xsl-fo, such a circumstance happens, to allow coincident
whitespace to be collaped, e.g. if two areas have whitespace one below
and one above, the two are merged.
I guess DSSSL does the same thing.
My solution was to place an empty sosofo prior to the one I wanted,
which blocked this action. The alternative is to force the whitespace,
though I'm unsure if dsssl has such a precendence property.
