When the buffer has many overlay strings (e.g., @pxref{Overlay
Properties, before-string}) or @code{display} properties that are
strings, it is a good idea to use the @code{cursor} property on these

cursor while traversing these strings. This directly communicates to
the display engine where the Lisp program wants to put the cursor, or
where the user would expect the cursor.
