How do I set up my system so I can type&view those characters
Congratulations, you are lucky, this is 2013, and it already is set up. However, if find that you have against expectations trouble with something, describe the problem in detail so that the trouble can be shot.

Update: Select from the keyboard applet "English (US, international with dead keys)". Type AltGr + [ for , type AltGr + ] for .

[Corion]: You'll have to look somewhere esoteric for that. Maybe some tied variable or special dualvar can also trigger that. But it's certainly not a common occurrence
[Corion]: And on 5.20, the following also outputs no find:perl -wle 'for my $x ("\x{2000}".."\ x{1fffff}") { if( $x && ! length $x ) { warn qq(<$x>); warn length $x; die } }'
[Corion]: (this time on Unix)
[hippo]: Understood. I'll have to go through the code and see if it's doing anything fancy with ties, dual-vars or non-scalars. In the end, it's probably a bug though.
[Corion]: Aaah - you should be able to do this with overload, but I would hit somebody really hard if they constructed objects that are true but the empty string, and you not knowing about the domain knowledge where this makes sense
