Actually, re-reading my own text; this could also be an XSLT issue: on 
how to avoid spaces between the two transformed fo elements!

I put in copy xsl-list (not sure if this is a proper practice).

Tony, all

I still feel this is a FO issue and not FOP specific, because:
    - I got the same (-ve) result using XEP.
    - The problem is eliminated by removing the fo:inline.
    - I fixed this manually by removing the newline and/or space from 
around the <fo:inline> in the FO file.

I also tried adding fo:inline to the xsl:strip-space element list, but 
still. Keeping the fo:inline is needed to provide the normal web link 
appearance.

Does anyone have the same situation fo:inline within fo:basic-link, 
without the generated output padding spaces? If so what 
processor/version please, and can you send a sample fragment that works?

Many thanks for help
Khaled

I've added the element WebLink to xsl:strip-space to overcome, but 
didn't work.

The source is:
    employing <WebLink url="http://www.xml.org" 
<http://www.xml.org>>XML</WebLink>-based single-sourcing.

The xslt for element WebLink:
<xsl:template match="WebLink">
 <fo:basic-link>
  <xsl:attribute name="external-destination"><xsl:value-of 
select="@url"/></xsl:attribute>
  <fo:inline color="blue" 
text-decoration="underline"><xsl:apply-templates/></fo:inline>
 </fo:basic-link>
</xsl:template>

The Saxon generated FO is:
    employing <fo:basic-link external-destination="http://www.xml.org" 
<http://www.xml.org>><fo:inline color="blue" 
text-decoration="underline">XML</fo:inline></fo:basic-link>-based 
single-sourcing

And the FOP 0.93 (and XEP 4) generated PDF is (an extra space around "XML"):
    employing  XML -based single-sourcing.
