Isn't it a little bit old? I would advise you to check The Indian TUG
Chapter 9, ``Tricks with text'' is, I think, what you're looking for;
but all chapters are worth reading (and you can download both the PDF
with the chapter as well as the source code).

WinEdt is really a front-end to an actual TeX distribution, which
might be, in your case, MikTeX or TeXLive, right?
I see in WinEdt's web site snapshots that it has a button ``dvi-
>ps''; that runs dvips, after you have run TeX or LaTeX. Then there
is another button ``ps->pdf'' ---if you run that too it will create a
PDF you can view with Acrobat Reader, for example.
