    There's a freeware app called Taco HTML Edit that can be found at Version Tracker. It's a very simple app, but it works great, and I use it for all of my HTML work.

    You could also just use TextEdit. It's just a basic text editor like Notepad.

    Try TextWrangler and SubEthaEdit; both are free and MUCH better than notepad .

    Word 2004 has a 'notebook' aspect.

    It's going to take Microsoft 200 years to put that in? :cool:

    Anyway, Notepad is part of Windows and not Word. And as it has been said, TextEdit on OS X is what the original poster wants.

    It should probably be noted that the original poster should use TextEdit in "plain text" mode and not "rich text" mode.

    TextEdit will work great as a replacement for Notepad assuming you put it into plain text mode in the preferences. However, I really like TextWrangler, which is free (formerly not free) for all kinds of text editing.

    You're kidding, right? Perhaps, you don't know, but Google is your friend. For software searches, you can find almost anything at VersionTracker. MacUpdate is an even better bet for Mac software.

    I think you mean "Notebook" and yes, it is a part of Word 2004 for Mac. Otherwise TextEdit is the equivalent for NotePad.

    Another vote for OS X's native Text Edit. It does just as good a job as anything else for html.
