The alternative method @code{diary-simple-display} displays the actual
diary buffer, and uses invisible text to hide entries that don't apply.
Holidays are shown in the mode line. The advantage of this method is
that you can edit the buffer and save your changes directly to the diary
file. This method is not as flexible as the fancy method, however. For
example, it cannot sort entries. Another disadvantage is that invisible
text can be confusing. For example, if you copy a region of text in
order to paste it elsewhere, invisible text may be included. Similarly,
since the diary buffer as you see it is an illusion, simply printing the
buffer may not print what you see on your screen.
@c View mode does not seem to be described in the manual.
@c buffers.texi has a brief mention.
The fancy diary buffer enables View mode, a minor mode that provides
commands for scrolling and searching the text. For example, @key{SPC}
and @key{DEL} scroll forward and backward, and @key{s} starts an
incremental search. See the documentation of the function
@code{view-mode} for more information.
