This is a known problem, and I brought it up myself some time back,
on this list. It might be a Batik problem, not FOP.

It has been suggested that you use stroked text, but for some of us, 
that's impractical if there are images with enough text in them - the 
PDF file size becomes significantly larger. I've had to insert timeseries 
graphs in the past, and found that the files became 10 times larger if 
the text were stroked.

My "solution" was to use non-stroked text, and require my users to
view PDFs with Acrobat Reader 5, which renders and prints the PDFs 
correctly, unlike Reader 4 and Ghostview. Acrobat 4 displays the PDF
correctly, but fails to print the file on some printers; Ghostview neither
displays correctly nor prints.
