    Hi all

    just got a new mac and have downloaded textwrangler to use as a replacement for notepad++.

    When I try and run my html code I get an error saying 'shebang' line error.
    for this problem I have two questions.

    How do I set Textwrangler to run or load my pages into a browser?

    Is Ricky Martin responsible for the 'shebang' line error?

    HTML files cannot be "run" from TextWrangler. You just need to preview them in a browser. The Run is for executable files like Perl, Python, etc. BBEdit, the paid version of TextWrangler, has a preview in BBEdit option that lets you view it from there, but it's not available in TextWrangler.

    Shebangs, are scripts that have a first line of #! that tell it where the binary of the program to run the file is at.
