Unfortunately XMetaL does not have this capability directly at this time.  We are considering it for a future release.

One workaround that been suggested is to create a custom Windows font for use within the editor, where the desired “invisible” characters have been replaced by visible glyphs. It would be possible to change the fonts and hence “hide/show invisibles” by altering the CSS via script. Admittedly this is a little bit of a hack. Derek may be able to comment on whether anyone is actually doing this in practice.
