      I quite like the idea of seeing ߠ[X] where X is the
      actual character if available. but how do you tell if it will
      be available, and not just be a white box?
      The full Unicode name as tooltip would be good, though.

      ah, I had not considered that. this is attribute and element names?

      Perhaps. The same thing can be done with an identity transform
      using some XML language, so its not vital; but an emacs solution
      would be nice. If my file is full of white boxes, toggling to a
      display full of number codes might be a good alternative view.
