... if you want to go the specialized editor way, and if you are on a Mac,
you could also try Richard Koch's TexShop
http://www.uoregon.edu/~koch/texshop/ (written for Macs, so works only on
Macs, but has been the model for other TeX editors, such as TeXworks.) As
most Mac programs, it likes (and displays) unicode :-).
