ooh, how I dislike that INS key ... I tend to hit that rather than
the DEL key many times;
then I'll start typing only to find I'm erasing ;-(
Whoever decided to place that INS key must not have been thinking;
doesn't any typist know to click on the space-bar to insert
letters, ... ;-)
Oh, right, this is a computer not a 'glorified typewriter' ;-)

An interesting point.
Perhaps there ought to be a mode switch between "Next top of page" and
"Proportional" when using Page Up/Down keys.
I can't remember the last time I used my "Insert" key to change its mode.
Perhaps it is time to make "Insert" a mode switch for Delete, Home, End
and Page Up/Down.
After all, we've got Control, Alt and Win/Apple Whatever special keys.
What's one more in the group.
Alas, I digress

Word: When reading through a document, one hits 'PgDn', but one doesn't
get a new page--it only scrolls down some seemingly arbitrary number of
lines. One has to scan the new screen to see what one left off reading
and one may only have gotten a half page of new reading for the effort.
Maybe I'm spoiled by e-readers. But maybe, even after all these years, I
haven't figured out how to do this correctly in a word processor.
