Thanks for the bug report, Pavel. I've fixed the problem in FOP Trunk:
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?rev=684577&view=rev

Can you please verify that it works with AbiWord now? The semicolon was indeed in an illegal position. I found that it was actually missing at the end of the individual font entries.

The semicolon after colortbl is not illegal. There's even an example in the MS Word RTF 2002 spec that shows the semicolon right after the string "colortbl". I assume this is what caused the problem in fonttbl.
