TextInfo derives that value from the value of the word-spacing
property.

That must be an error in the property handling by FOP. In
FOPropertyMapping 0pt is used as the default value. Apparently
"normal" should be the default value. I am not sure how this can be
done for a space property. Something similar happens for length
properties, which can have the default value "auto". I think "normal"
should be a keyword. Apparently, the actual value can only be
calculated at layout time, when the font is known.
