Roy -
I normally write in "insert" mode, so that added words or characters
do not delete the existing text.

I use "Typeover" or "Overwrite" mode when I am editing a form or
anything created with a specific spacing, such as a table with the
columns created by multiple spaces (bad method to use, BTW).
Typeover is especially good for making ASCII art because you can alter
individual characters without messing up the rest of the picture.
