  I hope you understood clearly what I wrote :-)

  The problem is not for Local Variables in particular, it was just an

  Every reference in  an info file has « hidden text  », as you surely
  know. In fact, if I copy text that contains a reference then past it
  I obtain, for example :

I copy from the Elisp manual :

     *Note Strings of Events, for special considerations for strings of
keyboard character events.

  and I past (note the semicolons):

     *Note Strings of Events::, for special considerations for strings of
keyboard character events.

  My problem is just that the Isearch is made on the « unhidden »
  text. I see « Strings of Events » but it matches « Strings of
  Events:: » too.

  It may not be a bug, but a feature, but I'd like to disable it :-)

  BTW, for  outline-mode, the `...' notation that  expands itself when
  a match of a  search is in it, is not a «  feature » that Gnus's `...'
