Hey guys
I recently updated my mac to osX 10.8 and to my amazement I found out that I no longer can edit html pages on text edit.
Before I could just drag and drop a file to text edit and see the code. What happens now is text edit tries to render the page. which is a behavior I don't need at all.
Is there a way to switch to the "text" view of the code?
Thanks in advance

Thanks for the suggestion. It seems that there is an option in text edit to display the HTML code instead of rendering the page.

I'll give Text Wrangler a go though since I've heard good things about it before!
