Thanks for pointing me to other tools. I have considered them as well but 
there are several arguments that let me favor Preview-LaTeX:
1. I can do all my editing in EMACS, my favorite text editor, and I don't
   have to move my head between a WhizzyTeX window and the editor window.
2. I often work on a Laptop which only has a 1024x768 sized screen and
   having an EMACS and the WhizzyTeX window open at the same time will be
   problematic. In addition the laptop probably isn't fast enough to let
   WhizzyTeX update text in real time (I haven't tried it, though).
3. As for Lyx and Texmacs: I want to have full control over the LaTeX code
   I'm writing and, in addition, I use a lot of macros and 3rd party
4. Writing a fill-paragraph function that works properly with Preview-LaTeX
   shouldn't be too hard once we have something similar to compute-motion
   that measures in pixels.
