Even though adding the `invisible' property will allow isearch to skip
the text under the `display' property for Emacs packages where this is
desirable, it will not solve the original problem in Info reported
in the initial message of this thread.

Info-search operates on plain text Info files without text properties
set by Info-fontify.  So it should rely on pure syntactical elements
like `*Note ' tags.  This is implemented in my latest patch.
