Great, maybe I'll even get the chance to introduce TeXLive 2004 at the 
end of the course. I don't think anything newer than TL 2003 will be

Yes, I guess that's what I'll do. I will take a day (or maybe half a 
day) to check out some editors next week and hopefully find an 
alternative to Notepad (or Wordpad, as it is called in XP).

Does TCL work out of the box in windows or does it require an 
installation first?
