[TxMt] A long em-dash (and other things)

I've always dreamed about a text editor that will show unicode to me
in a slightly more suitable form than what I'm used to. Like a double-
width em-dash (assuming fixed width fonts are being used) -- or even a
double-width en-dash and a triple-width em-dash -- and visual
differentiation between the various invisible characters like no-break
space, zero-width joiner, and the half dozen or so extra unicode
glyphs that aren't displayed very well in code.
While TextMate's "Show Invisibles" does indeed show no-break space,
(most of?) the others remain invisible. And em-dash is rather hard to
distinguish from en-dash :)
Has anyone else ever thought such things before? Certainly I think
greater editing support for such unicode glyphs would encourage their
use (which, at present, seems rather uncommon).
