Outline Mode

   Outline mode is a major mode much like Text mode but intended for
editing outlines.  It allows you to make parts of the text temporarily
invisible so that you can see just the overall structure of the
outline.  Type `M-x outline-mode' to switch to Outline mode as the
major mode of the current buffer.  Type `M-x outline-minor-mode' to
enable Outline mode as a minor mode in the current buffer.  When
Outline minor mode is enabled, the `C-c' commands of Outline mode
replace those of the major mode.

   When a line is invisible in outline mode, it does not appear on the
screen.  The screen appears exactly as if the invisible line were
deleted, except that an ellipsis (three periods in a row) appears at
the end of the previous visible line (only one ellipsis no matter how
many invisible lines follow).

   All editing commands treat the text of the invisible line as part of
the previous visible line.  For example, `C-n' moves onto the next
visible line.  Killing an entire visible line, including its
terminating newline, really kills all the following invisible lines
along with it; yanking it all back yanks the invisible lines and they
remain invisible.

   Entering Outline mode runs the hook `text-mode-hook' followed by the
hook `outline-mode-hook' (Note: Hooks.).
