[texhax] LaTeX editors

I have looked at latexeditor and can recommend it---just like TXC.
Personally, I see two advantages: it occupies less space on the screen
and I like the current line highlighting. So it looks nice. What I
dislike from the very beginning is how it treats warnings and errors
and the absence of help.

Still, I really want to find in some program what Studio does when I
edit html with it: it cleverly suggests the commands while I type and
their arguments. I also find brackets highlighting extremely
useful---and think this would be even more useful with LaTeX's braces,
and dollars and lefts and rights and begins and ends. 

If anybody knows or will learn of such interactive editing possibility
with LaTeX---please drop a line for me on this list!

Thanks again for help!

Happy TeXing!
