Hmmm. I understand the logic, but I don't think it's justified by the
either the XSL-FO spec or the Unicode spec (at least I couldn't find
anything that suggested that ZWSP is more than just that: a space of
zero width). That is, it's a character and is not a white-space
character per the XSL-FO spec, and therefore it must be treated as any
other character and therefore preserved.
This is not a bug issue particularly--using fo:leader is probably the
better markup approach, but I don't think I can agree with the
implementation behavior described above.
