Thanks for the suggestion.

A lot of the time, the text I have already
contains the zero-width spaces. And for new text entering the ZWSP with a
Khmer keyboard driver is trivial -- hit spacebar for ZWSP and Ctrl-spacebar
for a normal space.

In that regard, entering a numeric character reference is
considerably more work, since Khmer does not use Arabic numerals. Since the
number keys are mapped to Khmer glyphs for 0-9, it would entail switching from
the Khmer keyboard to the Western keyboard after every word and then back
again for the next word.

Right now, I'm using XML Copy Editor to work on the
text and the XML/XSLT when they're together, but properly prepared text
requires checking the ZWSP. The goal is simply being able to transform content
in a single file into web, PDF or e-book format, both with and without English

In the end, I'd like to do my XML and XSL work in the same
editor that
I use for the content, not least so that a fully marked-up text
go to separate editors for markup and text corrections. 

Any editors
at all that display non-printing characters for proofing, including the ZWSP?

You could always use numeric character
