## Re: [O] Show presence of zero width spaces using overlay

Thanks for letting me know about org-entities. That is awesome. I now know how to escape various characters in general, but unfortunately this does not work within verbatim formatting (which makes sense).

Here's a minimum working example:

=====

* Escaping =equal= sign in verbatim formatting.
=a\equal{}b+c=
** Here's the same but using zero width spaces instead of /org entities/.
=a=b+c=

* Here I am trying to have double quotes in verbatim formatting.
=\quot{}This is inbetween double quotes\quot{}=.
** Here's the same but using zero width spaces instead of /org entities/.
=​"This is inbetween double quotes"​=.

* And here's to escapes asterisks
This is *bold*. But this is \ast{}not bold\ast{}.
This works!

Here's what it looks like when exported: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10985/escape-chars.pdf

Check out the variable `org-entities' for all the replaceable escape
codes. It's got quotes and equal!
