Re[2]: [xep-support] Re: Space between two Japanese characters is ignored by Adobe PDF reader

Hi Volodymyr,

XEP doesn't insert white-space characters in the PDF output. It
absolutely positions text chunks. The reason for that is the
following: word spacing in PDF applies only to code 32 character; for
details, see PDF Reference, section 5.2.2 Word Spacing.

It seems that Acrobat incorrectly handles absolutely positioned text
chunks with CJK characters.

Acrobat Distiller inserts white-space characters in the PDF text
