With tex-fold.el (part of AUCTeX) there is another package which
reveals text which is hidden by a display property if point is moved
horizontally into the respective area.

In tex-fold.el left-clicking currently will reveal the folded text.
(Similar to preview-latex there is an overlay on the text with
'mouse-face set.)  The reactions to mouse clicks will be synchronized
with preview-latex in the future.  What actions will be triggered by
mouse-1 and mouse-2 will be subject to discussion.

Well, there is preview-latex and tex-fold.el.  And Talcum
(<URL:http://talcum.sarovar.org/>) reveals text on cursor movement as
well.  I didn't check how it behaves with regard to mouse clicks,
