vim has those types of modes, too -- perl highlighting, C
shortcuts, html facilities... but i'm talking about INSERT mode
versus COMMAND mode versus FRAMMISTAT mode versus CLAVIS mode...

"w" goes forward a word in edit mode
"w" inserts a "w" in insert mode
"w" writes to a file in command mode

i think some of the folks a newbiedoc are using latex. i'm just
myself now getting up on sgml, so latex is way beyond me! (maybe
you can write a newbiedoc intro for latex soon?)
