Perhaps you should give good old Vedit a try. The Window version 5.0 is due
Jun 2. See

Subject: SliTeX
Hi friends!:
I have a question: I need to use the Slitex.
I tried to install it using the disk08 where I could
find the file slitex.zip. I followed the steps indicated to install
a disk : using the 4install.bat. The installation, apparently, was ok
all the files from the diskette were copied to the directory c:\emtex
where I installed the latex. But, when I tried to use it I got a
an error message:
!Latex Error: Unkown option 'errorshow' for package 'tracefnt'
...
1.270 \DeclareSymbolFont
{OT1}{cmr}{bx}
{n}
Question: What does it mean?
Can you tell where to find the slitex and how do I must install
it so I can use it?
Thank you very much!

Subject: TeX directory structure (tds) 0.9993 available
Another draft (0.9994) of the TeX Directory Structure (TDS) standards document
is now available from:
http://www.tug.org/tds/
ftp://ftp.tug.org/tex/tds.tar.gz
The DVI file is:
ftp://ftp.tug.org/tex/tds/tds.dvi
Soon it will be on CTAN as well, in the `tds' directory.
(finger ctan@mail.tug.org for a list of CTAN hosts.)
The only differences from 0.9993 are a revised section on AmiWeb2c from
the author and some editorial changes. If no problems arise from the
discussion at the upcoming TUG 97 meeting (http://www.tug.org/tug97/),
this will become version 1.0.
Please send comments to twg-tds@mail.tug.org.

Subject: TeX Graphic Package?
Greetings To Tex UK,
I have just started to use Tex (in it's standard form) ver 3.141. I am
endeavouring to produce fairly complex standard documents(tax forms,
governmental forms etc).
My question: I am trying to produce fairly exact
documents. As a beginner ( and someone who has spent most
of my adult life in the world of windows) I find TeX difficult to use. Are there
Graphics packages (with a GUI) which produce TeX code? Which ones would you
recommend, and how can I get them quickly (help). Our operating system is SUN OS
5.4 generic sun4m. and we currently using TeX 3.141.
A second question: We are also trying to run TeX on a Sequent system(DYNIX 4.0
V4.1.2 i386). We are encountering problems compiling the TeX code. Is there a
pre-compiled executable available somewhere which runs under this system?
Shane Hoey.

Subject: boxed, multiline formula
Could somebody explain (or only suggest) to me how to get the following
"boxed and displayed formula" (I need it to have in book) or may be
there is some macro (LaTeX2e) which does it or may be somebody could send me
some private macro:
_____________________________________________
| |
| e.g.: \iint_D xydxdy |
(1) | formula 1 \sum.... |
| .... |
| |
| e.g.: \lim.. |
| formula2 .... |
(2) | ..... |
| |
|_____________________________________________|
or
_____________________________________________
| |
| e.g.: \iint_D xydxdy |
(1) | formula 1 \sum.... |
| .... |
|_____________________________________________|
| |
| e.g.: \lim.. |
| formula2 .... |
(2) | ..... |
| |
|_____________________________________________|
I would like to have the box horizontal and vertical centered
and automatically numbered.
I would prefer to have it in LaTeX2e (AMSLaTeX)
It was told to use minipage environment so
I have tried to use 'minipage' and 'tabular' environments but the results
are rather poor, the places of numbers are not adjusted and the width of
the box is not equal to the width of textwidth (ho to do that?) :
- -------
\documentclass[12pt,leqno]{amsart}
\textwidth=12 true cm
\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb}
\begin{document}
bbbbbbb aaaaaaaaa aaaa aaaaaaa aaaaaaaa aaaaaaa aaaaaaa aaaaaa aaaaa
aaaaaa aaaaaa aaaaaaa aaaaaaaa aaaaaa aaaaaaa aaaaaaaaa aaaaaa aaaaaaaa
aaaaaa aaaaaaaa
\par
\bigskip
\noindent
\begin{tabular}{ p{1cm}| p{11cm}|}
\cline{2-2}
(1)
& \begin{minipage}[c]{11 true cm}
\begin{equation}
\iint\limits_D \nonumber
\end{equation}
\end{minipage} \\
(2) &
\begin{minipage}[c]{11 true cm}
\begin{equation}
\sum_i x_i \nonumber
\end{equation}
\end{minipage} \\
\cline{2-2}
\end{tabular}
\bigskip
\begin{minipage}[c]{1cm}
\vspace{-0.8em}
\begin{eqnarray}
\ \\
\ \nonumber \\
\ \\
\ \nonumber \\
\ \\
\ \nonumber \\
\
\end{eqnarray}
\end{minipage}
\framebox{
\begin{minipage}{11cm}
%\vspace{-\abovedisplayskip}
\begin{eqnarray}
\iint\limits_D xy dx dy \nonumber\\
\sum_i x_i \nonumber\\
\iint\limits_D xy dx dy \nonumber\\
\sum_{\sum\limits_{k=0}^i}^{\sum\limits_{s=1}^m} x_i \nonumber
\end{eqnarray}
\end{minipage}}
\end{document}
