Is this somehow related to JDOM? If (as it seems) not, you will have better chance asking this question on an SVG(-related) mailing list.

Subject: [jdom-interest] SVG not honoring equally spaced characters including spaces

SVG doesn’t seem to honor equal spacing in equally spaced 
fonts like Courier. For example, the .svg file contains some 
adjacent spaces. They get reduced to one space by SVG 
viewers. What is the key to making text equally 
spaced including space characters?
I have converted to .svg old program output that needs an equally 
spaced font in text including embedded and leading 
space characters (leading spaces might be more difficult).
How do I do this when SVG seems to do its own thing with
spaces even on monospaced fonts? Some unknown attribute?
