    Does anyone know of a free mac HTML or CSS editor? I'm looking to change some things in my wordpress style page and I need some assistance. Thanks!

    I know the mac comes with text editor, but I don't like that. The find function is useless.

    Are you taking about a WYSIWYG editor or a better text editor than text edit (with colour coding etc)?

    If it's the last one I recommend TextWrangler, but you may find other, maybe even better suited to your needs, in the stickies over in the Web forum, especially the Essential web-dev tools thread.

    Taco and Smultron both pale in front of TextWrangler. I think TextMate is the best but it comes with a price of $69.

    I like BBEdit better than Textmate.

    i've been using textwrangler (but i am going to try out espresso since i got it with the macheist bundle), which is pretty nice altho it's not WYSIWYG. it's made by the same folks as bbedit.

    I'll throw my ticket in the hat for Smultron as well.

    I was using TextWrangler, but switched to Espresso. I like it better.
