Topic: FOP fo:inline

I use FOP 0.20.5

I have xml with:
<str weight="bold" style="normal">A</str>
<str weight="normal" style="normal">       </str>
<str weight="normal" style="italic">B</str>
<str weight="normal" style="normal">    </str>
<str weight="normal" style="normal">C</str>

I want to achieve something like:
bold "A", spaces, italic "B", spaces, and normal "C" - all on the same line.

I thought I can achieve it this way:

<fo:block white-space-collapse="false">
<xsl:for-each select="str">
<fo:inline font-weight="{./@weight}" font-style="{./@style}"><xsl:value-of select="."/></fo:inline>

The result is I have 5 lines in my PDF :-(. I expected that fo:inline does not do new line. If I set white-space-collapse="true", I have "A B C" on one line but spaces are collapsed.

I want preserve spaces and have it all on one line.
I do not know how to do it.
Thank you for your help
