Normal? Depends on the POV. Valid? Yes. It simply means that the
producer of the PDF document hasn't been set. I'm sure this is not
having any impact on the output you're getting from RightFax. Since
Acrobat Reader displays FOP's PDFs correctly I assume RightFax's PDF
engine may be either buggy or maybe a bit unflexible with certain
constructs. I suggest contacting RightFax's creators asking them to
analyze a PDF generated by FOP for you and tell you whether we've done
something wrong or if they did.

I don't know of any. Just try some other PDF viewers such as GhostScript
and check their output.
