??? Why not "M-x hexl-mode RET" or "M-x hexlify-buffer RET"?  This is
Emacs, right?

That character is displayed as a thin space in my Emacs 23.4.  Not
sure why you didn't see it.

In Emacs 24, you can control the display using the glyphless-char
stuff.  But otherwise, I don't see what exactly is wrong with Emacs in
that case.
