Just a quick progress report.

I have what I think is a working patch. All existing tests pass and a 
new test for white-space="pre" seems to produce the correct results.

Need to do some more testing for some "unusual" property combinations 
like: white-space-treatment="preserve" and text-align="justify" or 
"center" although I am not 100% certain what outcomes to expect in some 
of these cases.

And while I am at it I want to look at the other values for the 
white-space-treatment property (ignore-if-before/after-linefeed).

It also transpired that white-space-treatment="preserve" is sort of the 
same as replacing <SPACE>... with <NBSP><ZWSP>.... This means the Knuth

sequences I generate for the white-space-treatment="preserve" case 
should also be able to be used for zero-width spaces. So I'll look into 
that as well.

PS: Good to be back working on FOP - really missed it for the last 
couple of months.
