Sorry if this has already been posted. I wasn't able to find anything when I did a quick search.

What is a good HTML/Text editor (I know Tag has one) with Live Preview? That is, it let's you see it as a web browser would see it. I'm relatively inexperienced in this area. Been messing with TextWrangler, but I'm getting tired of switching back to my FTP program to upload to see what it looks like.

Thanks.

I think the free Nvu can do this. If all else fails, you can run Apache, keep your work in a properly-permissioned folder in /Library/WebServer/Documents and point your web browser at localhost.

SubEthaEdit can do that. I think TextMate will as well. They do the preview using WebKit so it will appear as it will appear in Safari.

Pretty sure Taco HTML Edit does it too.

SubEtha definitely does, I think TextMate does. It certainly can do a lot of HTML stuff.
