Overscript is also a typographical term akin to Subscript and superscript (also underscript). Ideally a disambiguation line should be added; however, I have yet to locate the article pertaining to the term as used in typography (or at least the article discussing the topic, whether or not the actual term is mentioned).

Agreed, overstrike article is also poorly written and involves blanket opinions and data that is not backed up. The "INSERT Key" Article contains the definition of overstrike mode, albeit only a sentence, so an additional article is really unnecessary.
Article on overstrike mode isn't big enough, or notable enough, to warrant a seperate article, merge it into the page of the key that controls it. 184.108.40.206 15:53, 29 March 2006 (UTC)

Macintosh MS Word Overtype
The following text was removed on the grounds that it is unsourced (as is the rest of the section):
- "In Microsoft Word for Macintosh 2008 and 2011, the Overtype command can be added to a customized menu or toolbar, or assigned a keyboard shortcut."
This is not described in the help files for MS Word. I would also point out that if the command is added to a menu or toolbar it is necessary to exit and re-enter the document for it to become usable. Clearly, there's nothing more I can do here to try to help other translators use Macs. Nadiatalent (talk) 18:03, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
- If the rest of the section is also unsourced, then it should be tagged for needing sources. If it has been tagged already for a substantive amount of time, I'd say you're welcome to delete it or move it here until it can be sourced per WP:V. Either way, what you're describing is original research unless a reliable source has discussed this information. Cheers. Doniago (talk) 18:30, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
== Macintosh computers ==
From 1993 to 2007, the key was rebranded into a Help key. When pressed, the Help functionality of the application in use was launched. However, when using command line applications, it retained its original 'insert' functionality for compatibility reasons.Since 2007, Apple Macintosh computers have replaced the Help key with an Fn key to allow for usage of the top row both as "media keys" and as traditional function keys. On latest systems, pressing this key twice will take voice dictation and insert it at the cursor.
