Judging from the responses the list has received from Roy's post,
most people write in Insert, rather than Typeover, mode when given
a choice.

I believe it's a preference, Insert vs Typeover, and I prefet
Typeover. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, FM4 doesn't
have an Insert/Typeover switch and I am forced to write in
Insert mode. (I write in FM4.)

I prefer using Typeover because it save the added step of having
to Delete or Erase the text I'm replacing, the old text. I
rewrite, when necessary, and am done with it.

There's my two bits....
