I've been using "INVISIBLE SEPARATOR", and invoke:

   (modify-syntax-entry ?⁣ " ")

(there's a invisible separator after the "?"), which tells emacs to 
consider that character to be whitespace.

I know there is a (possibly more than one) variable defining regular 
what can appear immediately before and after emphasis and other markers, 
but I've never puzzled out how to get them to include invisible characters.

I generally use this technique for combining markup, or making a 
marked-up name plural (e.g., ~object name~s).
