-> So, lacking suitable fonts, Pango could simply display '[RLM]' or
-> something like that.
Just a quick note on this: Nedit (the ASCII editor) uses the four
as a single "character" to represent \r. It uses similar
bracketed words for other non-displayable characters. It works very well,
but throws off alignment in (monospaced) ASCII art.
Also, there are a conventional set of glyphs for \n (paragraph
symbol), \t (something like -->|), and space (a centered dot), and I
would like to see these in a "display whitespace" mode in addition to the
"display non-printable characters" mode.
