In a JTextField and JTextArea currently all text typed in is inserted. The components should also support a replace mode. 
The user should be able to toggle between the insert and replace mode with the insert key. The thickness of the caret 
should indicate the mode.

EVALUATION Reassigning to classes_swing. david.mendenhall@eng 1998-05-27 In merlin we added support for JFormattedTextField. Along with this we added DocumentFilter, which allows you to change what will be inserted so that it is rather trivial to create a replace mode, closing as a duplicate. ###@###.### 2001-10-10
