Hi, Keiron

My gut feeling is that with an initial "score-spaces" value of "true", and
since 6.6.3 tells us that we treat characters as fo:character, and
score-spaces is applicable to fo:character, I would say that the underline
applies to the space.

Hi Karen,

I seem to be having a bit of trouble getting that text parsing right. I
was mainly just trying to get something to work to see on the output.
It should be able to be simplified thanks to the earlöier whitespace
I still wonder what should be done in a situation like:
<block>some text <inline text-decoration="underline"> more
Is the space before "more" underlined or not?
