It looks like your <fo:block> elements are being set to justify, possibly
inherited from something.

Try specifying <fo:block text-align="left"> (or whatever alignment you are
looking for) - that should solve the problem.

I've got a problem with XSLT/XSL-FO and spaces:

Here's a part from my XML-File

--- snip ---

        <MdtStrasse>Gewerbestrasse 6</MdtStrasse>

---snip ---

and here the interesting part from my XSLT/XSL-FO-File

--- snip ---

   <xsl:template match="Adressfenster">
      <fo:block><xsl:value-of select="MdtName" /></fo:block>
      <fo:block><xsl:value-of select="MdtStrasse" /></fo:block>
      <fo:block><xsl:value-of select="MdtPLZ" /><xsl:text>&#x20;
</xsl:text><xsl:value-of select="MdtOrt" /></fo:block>

--- snip ---

I try to create a text-file with FOP 0.20.5 from Apache. The result is a bit

--- snip ---

Gewerbestrasse       6
90478    N|rnberg
--- snip ---

Between "MdtName" and "MdtStrasse" is one empty line, but not between
"MdtStrasse" and "MdtPLZ". This string "Gewerbestrasse 6" in Tag
"MdtStrasse" with one space between Gewerbestrasse and number 6 ist
converted to a string with 6 spaces between Gewerbestrasse and number 6.
I've checked the text in MdtStrasse with a binary editor, there's really
only one space in the xml-file, no other characters.
And between MdtPLZ and MdtOrt are shown 4 spaces instead the one space I
tried to insert. I've checked the text in MdtStrasse with a binary editor,
there's one space between

Does anyone have an idea what's going wrong here? Thanks for your help!
