I don't think it applies to non-ASCII by default, at least for me it
doesn't.  I can set up font-lock for myself, of course, but was
wondering if Emacs has a simple built-in way to highlight them.

Also it would be good if the effect did not interfere with other faces,
so e.g. a subtle fading or underline effect overlaid with the regular
face would be nicer than just asking the user to customize it themselves
(although that option is still valuable).  I don't know much about Emacs
faces so any help is welcome.
