Kile is not a wyswyg for TeX editors. 

Kile is a application to allow you make TeX more easly thant vi file.tex
but you always enter directly tex commands. 

IMHO TeX is not so hard to learn. TeX/LaTeX become very hard when you want
do something very fine. And in that case it's simple the other software
(like OpenOffice/Word/etc.) just can do that.

For me TeX is the best for formating some documents. All my documents is in
TeX (well in fact in LaTeX) or in ... ascii.
