LaTeX editors for beginners: LEd and TexnicCenter

At the beginning of LaTex study, it is quite helpful if you choose a right editor. WinEdt is a wellknown shareware, but not worth it. Some other freewares provide more functions and powerful help documents without charge.

LEd and TexnicCenter are the two that outperform. They both provide document structure view (TexnicCenter displays it in a project only) and help documents in detail. Although they are not perfect, at least, it is better than WinEdt. By the way, till now, TexnicCenter lacks of unicode support.

It is a good idea to start a project in TexnicCenter, both LEd and TexnicCenter can edit the tex files.

For the use of these two latex editors, please refer to their documents.
