insulation in bathroom

hi,

I was wondering if there is any special consideration for insulating a bathroom. (I live in New England)

Question 1: Do I put in the insulation, then put a barrior between the facing and the green board for the walls?

Question 2: Before I tore out the walls there was mildew becuase of the absense of an exhaust fan. Is there anything I should to do the framing to ensure that mold or mildew doesn't occur in the new insulation before putting it in?

Thanks in advance

A 3rd question:

It looks like the ends of some of the insulation for the roof that comes down to the soffit outside the bathroom has mold on it. Can I just cut out the ends with the mold and leave the rest??
