      A further update: I reloaded Win 98 and my original problem went away.
      Escape now works as expected.

      But I would still like pointers to answers on the above two questions.

      I am interested in Evim not so much for myself, but I am writing a book
      which among other things recommends Vim as a better text editor than
      MSWord. However my audience will be if possible less technically adept
      than I am so I want to start them out with something that is not
      "mode hell." I always find myself in the wrong mode and have to backrack
      when for example the string "gqap" appears in the text of a paragraph.

      All assistance, past, present and hopefully future appreciated :=)
