However, I think that fill should at least be aware of 'invisible
properties (which should be doable), while dealing with 'display
properties is harder and less important (for my purpose at least).

If we fixed the 'invisible problem, then I could simply insert the
"see" into the buffer rather than using a 'display property and make
the *note part invisible to allow the Info navigation to remain

BTW, I was asked to implement image support in Info mode.  Has anyone
done some thoughts on how that should work [what kind of reference
would be in the info buffer, and where would the image be stored?]
