Thanks Drew.

I have now tried your code and it's great. I also updated it here:

• Usability Problems Of Emacs's Mode Documentation
  http://xahlee.org/emacs/modernization_mode_doc.html

Btw, when i insert a ^L, it automatically become displayed as
horizontal line but with the overlay display “Section (Printable
Page)”. Is there a way to turn that off? i.e. i just want a line.
