There is a program called TeXmacs, which blends elements of Emacs and  
TeX:

http://www.texmacs.org/

I've played around with it in the past, but never considered it for  
any serious use. I found the documentation to be lacking, and it has a  
peculiar file format and imperfect TeX/LaTeX compatibility ? so if a  
project got corrupted (or if development stopped on the program),  
you'd be out of luck. Besides, computers are so fast these days that  
the the time it takes to run a document through LaTeX and refresh the  
PDF (or postscript) display are negligible, anyway.
