There is now. :-)

StrongED 4.70a2 can make all the invisible characters listed above
visible. This is done by mapping the characters to other characters at
redraw time so editing is not affected.

Spaces are mapped to interpunct (ASCII 183) and hard spaces to bullet
(ASCII 143). Newlines were already taken care of in 4.69 and, of course,
Tabs have been visible for ages.

The Display section of the Mode Choices has been updated with additional
options for showing spaces and hard spaces.
