Just so we do not offer suggestions that you have already tried, tell us what you have done so far in terms of research or testing?

Try Lyx. It offers what they call "WYSIWYM" (What You See Is What You Mean). I really enjoyed using it. It is also a good stepping stone to using the pure markup language, as it allows you to input the latex commands directly if you know them.

There is also TexMacs. I have not used it, but it looks good. It has palette support for latex symbols, but also allows you run things like calc, octave, or scilab within it.

I use emacs + auctex.

If you are not a emacs user you can try lyx.
If you are a emacs user you can still try lyx since it also supports emacs keybindings.

Any way most editors today support syntax highlighting, if thats all you want.
But if you have not figured it out yet, i would assume that you want lyx.
