I've heard a lot about MiKTeX.  For the non-Emacs users this looks
good for LaTeX editing.

The MediaWiki folks also appear to use some form of LaTeX markup for
their equations and their math pages look pretty good.

When it comes to doing math right, I don't think LaTeX has any
competitors in the picture.  Besides, LaTeX scales really nicely too,
so its easy to write a large book with it.
