Currently if one puts a zero-width-space (U+200B) into an XSL-FO file
(or specifies linefeed-treatment="treat-as-zero-width-space") it is
rendered as a "missing character" in PDF. Is that correct, i.e. does
this character have to exist in the font used or should the formatter
or renderer simply remove this character? It is the second approach
that both AntennaHouse and RenderX appear to have chosen.
I recommend that no character is output for a ZWS. The whole purpose of
placing a ZWS into the input XSL-FO is to give layout an extra break
opportunity, without changing the appearance of the generated document.
