Romex and Insulation


Hello,
I have been trying to find a thread on this but have not been able to find something specific. Question is:

Is it safe and in compliance with the NEC Code to run romex through insulation wether it is blown in insulation or (fiberglass??) insulation like that R30 with the pink panther on it? Don't know what the name is exactly. Thanks for your time.

Thru the insulation is what I have always done
Knob & tube can't be covered by insulation
NMB is OK

If it's in the attic I like to make sure the NMB will not be stepped on
