It depends somewhat on how deep into TeX you plan to dive. If you are
planning to do non-trivial editing on a regular basis I would
personally recommend a CVS version of Emacs for win32. It is available
at http://ourcomments.org/Emacs/EmacsW32.html. It comes bundled with
AuCTeX which is a powerful editing mode for LaTeX. Emacs has been
ported to most platforms and so you will have the advantage of being
able to use the same editor and configuration for just about any

Please stop by #emacs on irc.freenode.net to sort out your Emacs
related queries.
