    Even in production fonts designed to depict text as users expect it, a
    glyph for ZWJ and ZWNJ can be useful since many word-processing or DTP
    applications include a display mode in which non-printing characters are
    visibly depicted. Microsoft includes glyphs for ZWJ and ZWNJ in some of
    their fonts for this purposes.
