Description Andrew Beekhof 2010-05-04 08:43:23 EDT
Description of problem:

Spaces in <screen> elements are expanded into unicode 0xA0 (nbsp) + 0xAD (soft hyphen).
When fop sees a following unicode 2D '-', the soft hyphen is printed.

so <screen> command --help -?</screen> actually comes out as "command ---help --?".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

1.6.1 and 1.6.2
1.1 did not have this problem. For now I have downgraded.

How reproducible:

Have tested with custom and default brands.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In a document, add <screen> command --help -?</screen>
2. Build the pdf version of the document
3. Open pdf
Actual results:

Text displayed as "command ---help --?".

Expected results:

Text displayed as "command --help -?".
