      Description

      When editing a document in Futon, with the whole-document source editor, I think the interface should show Unicode characters as CouchDB actually sees them.

      For example, if you enter this into a document:

      \u2708

      it becomes:

      Displaying the glyph is fine for display but when editing, I think it's important to see the actual JSON. This wasted a lot of time for me today when a document had a zero-width space (\u200b) that I couldn't get Futon to show me.
