    I'm taking a class to learn HTML. The professor is requiring a text editor and recommends a free editor called crimson editor for PC. There is no Mac version of crimson editor. Does anyone know of any free text editors for Mac? I've searched but have had no success.

    TextWrangler is the best free one, IMO, but Coda is just so gorgeous and have a very nice 30 day trial version where you get 30 days of actual working time and not just 30 days from the first day you open it up... ;)

    Oh, and this seems to be one of the most frequently asked questions in the Web design and development forum...

    So the demo gives you 720 hours of usable time? Thats amazing. Go Panic!

    Nah... I'm not sure they count the hours, probably just the different days you open it up... but if you don't use it over the weekend, or are busy doing something for a week, then the clock isn't ticking... ;)

    I'll chuck in another vote for TextWrangler. I use Crimson Editor on the PC, I came across it when searching for a nice easy one, and it compares favourably to TextWrangler. I like both.

    Well, still a very user-friendly feature

    Thank you for your responses. One of the stipuations is the program cannot write code at all. (since it is a HTML class) I guess I'll try textwrangler. I apologize if this question has been asked a million times.

    Actually, Coda's free trial is now only 14-days (I downloaded it about 10 days ago). I like it a lot, though, and just paid for a license today. It's not perfect, but I seem to fit Panic's target market to a tee. I'm a new switcher who used to use HomeSite for the PC.
