Andreas L. Delmelle commented on FOP-2349:

Had a first look at this one, and the culprit is hidden in a comment in 
In the private static method processWordMapping(), at line 162, it says 
    // [TBD] - handle letter-spacing

At this point, I cannot judge whether this was an oversight, or whether it is 
really such a hard problem that it could not be implemented at that time. I am 
going to have a closer look at that. 
In the meantime, if anyone has any useful hints or background info to add, feel 
free to chime in.

> Inline elements with letter-spacing and custom font aren't correctly sized

>                 Key: FOP-2349
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOP-2349
>             Project: Fop
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: layout/unqualified
>            Reporter: Matthias Reischenbacher
>         Attachments: inline-letter-spacing.pdf, inline-letter-spacing.xml
> If letter-spacing is applied to an inline element, that uses one of the 
> base-14 fonts, the width of the inline element is automatically expanded with 
> the letter-spacing.
> However if a custom font is used (e.g. Arial) the inline width isn't expanded 
> anymore, which prevents from using background-color or borders for the inline 
> element.
> See attached PDF which illustrates the problem.
