My 2 cents:

I am not a math guy. Neither am I a (La)TeX man - at least not in 
the math field. Hence I would prefer what Martin suggested (which 
I spent some time reading). Because even I know some math and 
needs a simple input method.

An HTML editor that can help me learn (La)TeX doesn't feel right.

But it is of course nice for you (La)TeX-ers that you can cut an 
paste math directly into the code etc ... And I am not the one 
making the cake ...

Of course, Amaya at the very least frees me from having to install 
a TeX distribution - that's nice. :-)
