Please: it's time to give Org-mode a try.

C-x C-f ~/test.org RET

Insert this string:

* A headline

A paragraphe.

C-c C-e l o

If (La)TeX is installed on the machine, this will open a PDF file.

You can configure Emacs to open this PDF file (or an ODT file) in
another Emacs window.

We could make it easy to export continuously in the background and
display the PDF/ODT part in another window, this way one would really
see what you get, in real time.

I guess that'd suit most of Richard needs, but it's hard to tell.
