Well, as I said - As far as I know... :-) I never had the opportunity  
to really work with the NeXT OS, unfortunately.
I looked around for Bakoma TeX, and finally found that on CTAN:
I guess that's what you mean; the actual "BaKoMa TeX home  
page" ( http://www.cemi.rssi.ru/cyrtug/BaKoMa.TeX/doc/eng/
  ) seems as if it hasn't been updated since 1998, with Windows 95 as  
the most recent operating system to run on.
However, this BaKoMa TeX looks promising, it also features a quasi- 
real-time-DVI-editor; I'll give it a try on my Windows machine. It's  
not free, unfortunately. Thanks,
