I can edit in Gvim, call pdftex from the Gvim command line, and have an 
xpdf session along side to display the result. Xpdf will refresh with a 
single keystroke: it displays the updated pdf file but retains its current 
page number. Acrobat Reader, the alternative to xpdf for Windows users, 
won't refresh. As an inferior subsitute one could I suppose fire it up and 
ask it to open at a given page number. But I don't know how to do that. 
Does anyone? 

The objective is of course a semi-wysiwyg process for pdftex development. I 
can do it on Linux with xpdf, but xpdf doesn't run on Windows AFAIK.
