--- Comment #8 from Heiko Tietze <heiko.tietze at user-prompt.com> ---
The purpose of showing non-printable characters is to manage the text, e.g. to
distinguish between repeated carriage return and paragraph space, to
discriminate between spaces and tabs, or to identify multiple spaces. 

However if the formatting information is shown directly by WYSIWYG means it
makes no sense to clutter the document. In case of zero width non joiners in
Farsi I understand the interaction as entering a character plus a ZWNJ which
leads to a different letter - but I may be wrong. And according Owen's reply
there might be some other reasons to not show special spaces. So why not having
a configuration switch?

But we should confirm this by native speakers rather than UX. So I add Kevin
Suo from the LO China Blog to the CC list.
