@Salvatore - ReText has a very nice live preview. Fails on sphinx docs
right now, though.

Currently, I use Eric4, which offers syntax-highlighting via Pygments
package for rst. Since I am reimplementing many features of Eric4's text
editor in my Plugin Editor plugin, it also offers highlighting for rst
files, directly from within QGIS [0]. It looks like I could incorporate
ReText (since it is PyQt-based, and just a single file) into Plugin Editor,
as well (maybe second release). I'll have a beta release of Plugin Editor
ready within the next week or so.
