Spun off from bug 58384. Right-aligned text with letter-spacing is offset from
the right edge of its container by exactly one unit of letter spacing (instead
of being flush).

Mozilla seems to add the spacing 'after' each character, and that is why the
last character of the line has the spacing too, which i believe it is the
problem here.
Then I believe, the spacing must be added 'between' the characters, as the w3c
specification say it

This needs to be fixed sometime before the end of the world (currently
02/01/2019).  It was messing up my announcement of doom at
http://www.blakeross.com/, and I had to lamely work around it.
