Please do not use overlays to insert things that look like regular
text.  It is extremely confusing to users who want to cut and paste,
save things to file, print out hardcopy and do all kind of other
everyday stuff.  We already got rid of similar uses (in info with
Info-hide-note-references set to t) for these reasons and made things
such that only the amount of whitespace was controlled by an overlay
(which is still somewhat bad, but much less bad than regular
non-whitespace text).
