Hi All,

when using `org-hide-emphasis-markers', making links visible with 
`org-toggle-link-display' also unhides the emphasis markers.  I believe 
this to be unexpected behavior (it certainly is to me), but I might be 
wrong here, given that the emphasis markers are explicitly set to a 
`org-link' invisible property (which see).

An ECM to reproduce the issue is:

- Start `emacs -Q'

- Do an initial setup:
  #+begin_src emacs-lisp
  (add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/elpa/org-plus-contrib-20201123")
  (setq org-hide-emphasis-markers t)

- Open an Org buffer with contents:
  #+begin_src org
  [[][Org mode for Emacs]]
  given the settings, both the link and emphasis markers should be 

- Call `M-x org-toggle-link-display', see that both the link and the 
  emphasis markers are made visible.  Toggle it again, and both are 

As far as I dug, the reason for this behavior lies in 
`org-do-emphasis-faces' which indeed uses the `org-link' invisible 
property to hide the links (at the very end of the function):

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(when (and org-hide-emphasis-markers
	   (not (org-at-comment-p)))
  (add-text-properties (match-end 4) (match-beginning 5)
		       '(invisible org-link))
  (add-text-properties (match-beginning 3) (match-end 3)
		       '(invisible org-link)))

So that `org-toggle-link-display' cannot really distinguish an emphasis 
marker from an actual link when it removes `org-link' from the 

I don't know why this is done this way in `org-do-emphasis-faces', so I 
might be missing something, but it does lead to this peculiar behavior 
of `org-toggle-link-display'.
