The text "*note " has the `display' text property with the string "see "
which is displayed instead of the original text.  The function
`isearch-range-invisible' (which is used by Info search) doesn't pay
attention to the `display' property.  It processes only the
`invisible' property.  It works the same in all Emacs buffers with the
`display' property (in `image-mode', `w3m' mode, etc.) where it finds
the text not visible on the screen.

How to handle this situation is not clear.  Should isearch find
the displayed text as a contiguous part of the search space?

The simplest solution is to treat the `display' property like `invisible'
property and to skip the text displayed over the original text.
