It is yet another peculiarity of Computer Modern: they use
a very peculiar built-in encoding that lacks a space
character (sic!). XEP can only use characters from the
built-in encoding - all other are replaced by a space.
When the space itself is missing, XEP recovers by putting
a character that is at codepoint 32 in the font. In your case,
it's a slanted tilde. I admit that the solution is not very
graceful. In future versions, we'll re-examine the respective
part more closely. Thank you for bringing the case into light.
As a workaround, specify an extra font family that contains
a glyph for a space. Any embedded font will do; for instance:
<fo:inline font-family="Computer Modern, Times"> 1 2 3 </fo:inline>
will bring the spaces back. (However, their width will be
taken from Times).
