I'm not sure I'm getting the point completely. Why do you insist on  
creating separate instream-foreign-objects for the different  
characters in the first place? IMO, the problem would practically  
solve itself if you could put all the text inside one i-f-o, no?

The effect you get right now is that of a different block being  
created for each i-f-o, the default height of which is always the  
line-height (1.2em IIC). AFAICT, the only way to manipulate the  
height would be to specify a different font-size/line-height for each  
created block --but then again, this seems somewhat suboptimal. I  
think you'll fare far better with putting all of the characters  
inside one single instream-foreign-object.
