Yes, it is useful to make these codes visible in edit modes; displaying
it in most viewing modes like « mail » and « news readers » is
annoying : Some Writers writers with a French background use
« no-breaking space » very often !

Using blue for the backslash is also arguable; a single slash in blue is
hard to distinguish from the surround text in black.  In the past I used
an IndianRed underscore for the no-breaking space.
