comment How to encourage TeX as a homework medium
I like the idea of having a "web 2.0" kind of tool to ease students into different parts of TeX. Detexify (detexify.kirelabs.org/classify.html) seems like half of that and various other sites that take math mode text and render an image is another half. Someone needs to pull it all together though.

I feel like building communication skills is often skipped out on in math and CS education and I think TeX can be a good tool for building those skills. I'm glad you are trying to incorporate it!

I used LEd for a while and liked a lot of the features, but eventually I ran into too many bugs and moved to TeXnicCenter.

TeXnicCenter does not run on linux directly, but perhaps through wine?

leftidx doesn't look like it addresses the spacing issue.
