Re: [xep-support] negative letter spacing with right justified text

Is the answer a secret? Is the problematic behavior a bug that has been listed for correction?
I would like to know how well XEP handles variations in letter-spacing.

  I have a problem trying to using negative letter-spacing with right justified text. It appears as though the starting position of text is calculated before any letter-spacing is applied. The net result is that instead of the text bumped up tight to the right, it appears to be padded a distance from the right, an amount equal to the space removed between the characters in the word/phrase.

  I am using XEP version 4.12.

  <fo:block text-align="right">
          <fo:inline letter-spacing="-1pt">TEXT</fo:inline>

  Using the example above, the word "TEXT" will appear 3 points left of the right margin. I assume that this is a bug in XEP and not designed behavior.
