I'd use font-lock to put an composition or display text property on
the string. Have a look at:
http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/PrettyLambda

However with using `compose-region' as suggested there you have to be
a bit careful with auto-saved files (because they are encoded in
emacs-mule, which preserves the composition property). Maybe it is
better to use the `display' text property. That would be a bit more
messy, though, if you want cursor movements to DTRT.
