Here's what I've been working on, done in BBEdit, tested on a Tomcat/Cocoon server running on my tiBook, uploaded via ssh using Transmit. It's still under development:

I'll add one to the mix:

jEdit, for SGML/XML/XSL (www.jedit.org (http://www.jedit.org)). Because it's a java app, it exhibits some quirks at first, but this thread: (jEdit discussion at Mac OS X...

Sure, IgoByte, I always like getting a faster computer; who doesn't? But my point was that I won't sacrifice the affective benefits of using a Mac for absolute speed, a slightly lower price (or even...

Since you guys seem to know much more than me about Unicode, here's a (rhetorical) question: When is MS Word going to support Unicode on OSX? Isn't Unicode support fully implemented in the Windows...
