Normally, the cursor is displayed at the end of any overlay and text

place the cursor on any desired character of these strings by giving
that character a non-@code{nil} @code{cursor} text property. If the

Emacs will display the cursor on the character with that property
regardless of whether the current buffer position is actually covered
by the overlay. Specifically, if the value of the @code{cursor}
property of a character is the number @var{n}, the cursor will be
displayed on this character for any buffer position in the range
@code{[@var{ovpos}..@var{ovpos}+@var{n}]}, where @var{ovpos} is the
starting buffer position covered by the overlay (@pxref{Managing
