I see, thanks.  If I understand correctly, at the moment, the check is done in 
the IT_DISPLAYING_WHITESPACE macro, and indeed that macro only checks for 
spaces and tabs.

Would it help to restrict that property to spaces and tabs, since we only break 
lines on these at the moment?  Or is the cost of accessing text properties from 
IT_DISPLAYING_WHITESPACE too high in any case?

I tried to see how often text properties were accessed after calling 
IT_DISPLAYING_WHITESPACE, but without too much success.  In one of the 4 calls, 
it seems that a subsequent call to PRODUCE_GLYPHS will check specified-space 
properties like QCalign_to.  For the other three calls, I'm not sure.  Would 
these other three calls sufer from additional property checks?

(I can see how overlay properties would further complicate matters.  Maybe we 
could restrict support to char properties, at first)

Clément.
