Display of all individual special characters



Is there a way to force special characters to be shown on their own, even if they are combining characters, ie., meant to be shown as modifications of preceding characters?

WYSIWYG has its merits, but trying to edit text with such characters is pretty much impossible.

This sort of stuff includes Zalgo, for example: http://eeemo.net/


There’s always a way, but you might have to write a package to read each individual character code in the file and display them specially in Atom.
