If i put a inline area in a block area, there are spaces before and after the inline area, i don't expect.

      <fo:block background-color="blue">

By putting these in separate blocks, you will have them on separate lines, and you will therefore have leading in-between. By not specifying leading, the processor can use any value between 1 and 1.2 of the line height, the difference to the line height being the leading.

When you say "before" and "after", I'm assuming you mean the writing direction depending "before" and "after", related to the line areas. If not, can you find different words to express your observations? As with the others, I cannot see your test file.

I hope this helps.
