    I normally use dreamweaver for my HTML needs, however, on my stock macbook, it runs incredibly slowly.

    What would be nice is a HTML editor with the split view mode like Dreamweaver, since I find it really handy. Goodpage has something like this, but it's too minimalist for me.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Taco Html Edit, but it might not be advanced enough for your tastes.

    You're right Eraserhead, Taco is quite basic, I'd seen it already on my googling.

    Nvu looks pretty good, and it runs pretty well under Rosetta. I'll need to give it a pretty good use to test it out.

    Thanks you two :)

    Be warned that Nvu is very windowsish, and may get irritating after a few minutes. Whenever I'm on a computer without Dreamweaver I just download TextWrangler partly because it's a nice text editor, and partly because it's a free download.

    If WYSIWIG is your thing then you're probably stuck with Nvu or something that costs money. I can't stand Nvu personally, but I wish you luck.

    lol, on windows, ppl complain it is not windows native, on mac, ppl complain its windows-ish,
    its cross-platform, not anything-ish

    but i do hope they release a UB version.

    Is it made in java? That's even worse. :p

    That's a standard text editor that costs money. If you are going to go that route, you might as well buy a good text editor like textmate or subethaedit.
