LaTeX editors

Anyone can recommend me a good LaTeX editor (i mean syntax hilighting, help about latex commands, etc).

All of my colleagues that do LaTeX use emacs ... I
don't TeX myself, so can't make any suggestions.

I use kile. It's a kde prog, so you really need kde for that. But it's REALLY good. Here is there homepage : Kile

I'm new at the Linux thing; a little less new at LaTeX. Kile is great; I just wish there was more of my text document visible on the screen--lots of other things cluttering up. Kate comes with KDE and does syntax highlighting, and puts a nice little terminal command-line interface at the bottom. Nedit also does highlighting.

Talking TeXmacs

GNU TeXmacs , it's like LaTeX with GUI

works great for me... I think its name says it all: it's a mix of Emacs and LaTeX

I found TeXmacs to be quite buggy. But maby that has changed.

Use LyX. It's WYSIWYM, pull-downs to insert everything, but if you know the LaTeX command to do something, you can enter it directly. Nice way to wean yourself into a full-text based mode.
