User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6a) Gecko/20031030
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6a) Gecko/20031030

My HTML source contains the sequence ​ written in exactly this ASCII
format.   These character sequences are completely invisible in HTML Source view.

(I use this "zero-width space" to allow for breaks in long displayed URLS thus:
<a
href="http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/howitworks/security/kerberos.asp">http://www.microsoft.com&#8203;/windows2000&#8203;/techinfo&#8203;/howitworks&#8203;/security&#8203;/kerberos.asp</a>)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use an ASCII Editor or in Composer the HTML Source View or the Insert HTML...
Menu Entry to insert the sequence &#8203; into an HTML file
2. Save the file
3. Open in Composer, View as Source Code.
Actual Results:  
The character sequence &#8203; is invisible

Expected Results:  
Display the character sequence (this is *source* view, after all).

That's because the View-Source doesn't shows you the real source of the page,
but the 'generated' html (added by JavaScript on the fly), and it's also
translated a bit (escape-sequences etc ...). I guess (but haven't checked), that
this whitespace-char was also translated to a normal space.

1)  This is about the source view in composer, not about view-source in browser
    (totally different beasts).
2)  Don't dup to a tracking bug.
