If you look in the pdf spec the initial value of Tc (character spacing)
is 0.
So you could use 0 if it properly handles the pdf graphics state by
setting it to the old value when leaving a state. I don't know how
possible it is to do that but even with a large number it still needs to
reset it when leave the state.
Since it is used only in small sections it may be unlikely to cause a

Anyway the MAX_VALUE should work okay.
