The internal editor that Kile uses is Kate. Kate is a text editor created for programmers, which incorporates the ability to read and highlight many different types of text files, among which are LATEX and BibTEX; you can access many options for Kate directly from Kile's Tools menu.

To learn more about Kate and its capabilities, see the Kate Handbook. Kile users can start reading from the chapter “Working with the Kate Editor”.

The LATEX Reference

Kile features a very practical LATEX tag reference, which you can access by choosing Help->LaTeX Reference. It contains a thorough description of almost all the commands that you may use in LATEX and their syntax.
