I second this. TeXmacs is a very pleasant editor for mathematical
texts--I prefer it over LaTeX, even with LyX or Emacs, unless I need
specific LaTeX packages. I've wanted to write a Haskell plugin for
TeXmacs, but I'm not very good at Scheme, so it might be too much for
me at this time.

Anyway, I recommend taking a look at TeXmacs for all your maths writing needs.
