That would be great. I suggest to show those invisible characters when
"View > Show Invisible Characters" is activated. Although in the current
behaviour of that feature, the original text remains untouched. But if you
include `SpaceCharacters` in "Invisible Characters", then showing them needs
shifting of parts of the original texts to fit the representor of the
invisible characters in place of those zero-widths chars. I guess this is
a big problem because those characters are not so common in usual texts, and
when they are there, and the user wants to see "Invisible Characters", I
he wants to see them even if the texts are shifted.
Other Invisible characters I suggest to be shown in "Show Invisible
