    Hi,

    Can anyone advise whether or not there's a Notepad equivalent for HTML coding on a Mac.

    Also, regarding right clicking to save an image, copying the URL of a link on a webpage and viewing source code, is there an equivalent to right clicking on a Mac please?.

    Thank you.
    Kind Regards.

    Well.. textedit does plain text technically.. but there are a lot of nice text editors out there... Textmate ($), BBedit ($$$), Textwrangler (free), Smultron (free), SubEthaEdit ($), Hyperedit ($), taco html idk go to http://macupdate.com/ and poke around.. also visit http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=171456 although there is always pico... vi, emacs.... etc...

    Right click with single button mouse is... ctrl + mouse click.

    Control clicking is equivalent to right clicking, and you can use Text Edit to code your HTML.

    You use Notepad for HTML editing? Hmm ... right, ok.

    OS X comes with TextEdit, but TextWrangler (a free download) is better. It has context sensitive formatting so you can more easily distinguish tags, attributes and content.

    I used notepad for HTML editing on windows. It was fast and didn't crash. No ummmm... features though.

    I use TextWrangler now. So far its my favorite OS X exclusive app. I found the color coding anoying at first (that's why I stuck with notepad with windows) but I love it now. If you're looking for a mac ftp client and haven't found one yet, I'd recomend cyberduck. Its free also, and a wonderful app.

    I found a solution

    Go to system preferences. Selected keyboard & mouse. When to trackpad tab and near the bottom I checked "For secondary clicks...blah blah blah". Give that a shot.

    Assuming you have a Mighty Mouse, you can turn on two or even three button use under :apple:>system prefs>keyboard & mouse>mouse. If you have something like a MS optical plugged in then it'll default to two button use and only let you set speeds and which button is left...
