It appears as "NOT SIGN" (x00ac). X00ac is the code point of the left
arrow in the symbol font. I'm not sure why FOP does not switch to
the correct font. Try
 <fo:inline font-family="Symbol">&#x2190;</fo:inline>
as a workaround.

White space is allowed. However:

The standard distribution knows only about Helvetica, Courier, Times
Symbol and Dingbats. See font.html from the distribution. If you want
to use Arial Unicode, you have to install it in FOP.
