Thanks Arved,

Solved my problem, didn't think of looking at the leader element's space property.

I would suggest investigating the use of fo:leader. There are several different
options by which you can use that to get a run of spaces - "leader-pattern" set
to "use-content" with no children of fo:leader will do that, as will (naturally
enough) "leader-pattern" with a value of "space".
