Thanks. I shall look again at abiword and kword. I had tried them a 
little in the past, but given up at stages where they were broken for 
various reasons -- old history now.  I do use scribus, and like it 
for what it does.  But you very much have to lay out each page 
individually, so it is great for display work but less good for more 
wordprocessing type of use.  Kile, I am trying to get used to, and to 
use it to help me learn latex.  I haven yet discovered if it can be 
extended to pick and insert environments and commands from memoir (to 
which others here pointed me).
