That's the _other_ part of my confusion in this thread... :-)

Info doesn't use invisibility to hide text, it uses the `display' property to
display whitespace instead.

I think probably message-mode should specifically add `display' the set of
properties stripped by yanking in message-mode buffers -- even less hacky
uses of the display property (such as images) are something the user had
better be aware of when sending email!

Well actually in general, I think it would be nice if message/mail-mode
handled pictures automagically by converting them info an appropriate mime
attachment, in which case probably the right thing to do would be to some how
distinguish betwen the two uses of the display property -- but I think this
should be done at _yank time_, not when sending (as I said before, sending is
too late); is there a hook that runs when something is yanked...?
