Good PHP editor on the Mac?

I cannot find a good PHP editor on the mac. The key features would by syntax highlighting and autocomplete (similar to the way visual studio shows what can be done after you type something). Also lightweight, i have seen Zend and its a horrible design and very very slow. I need something light and mac-like?

Does this lovely program not exist

Costs money, but Coda is a real nice web development tool.

I finally registered textmate. Yow. With the declining dollar (textmate's price is denominated in GBP), it was about $55 to register.

Still, I thought it was well worth it. It's one of the best text editors that I have seen. (PSPad on Windows is my other favorite.)

PHP Studio.

This is a specialist tool for php development. Haven't used it myself, but it looks nice and may be what you are after. You can download a free trial.

Edit: There are limitations: It doesn't handle projects (i.e. more than one file). It also doesn't keep track of variables outside functions. Also (I know it's poor practice) but if you have inline javascript in your php file, it can't seem to tell the difference between php and javascript functions.
