Prettify Symbols mode is a buffer-local minor mode that replaces
certain strings with more attractive versions for display purposes.
For example, in Emacs Lisp mode, it replaces the string @samp{lambda}
with the Greek lambda character @samp{λ}. You may wish to use this in
non-programming modes as well. You can customize the mode by adding
more entries to @code{prettify-symbols-alist}. More elaborate
customization is available via customizing
@code{prettify-symbols-compose-predicate} if its default value
@code{prettify-symbols-default-compose-p} is not appropriate. There
is also a global version, @code{global-prettify-symbols-mode}, which
enables the mode in all buffers that support it.
