BBEdit Guide

Using BBEdit to create and maintain HTML websites

BBEdit is a plain text editor from the good folks at Bare Bones Software. The plain applies to the formatting of the text, not to the features of BBEdit, which is anything but plain. Unlike Pages or Word or TextEdit or many other examples of word-processing software, BBEdit does not care much about WYSIWYG document creation. But if you have one or more text files, and you need to manage them as text using Mac OS X, BBEdit is the tool for you.

According to, BBEdit is the leading professional HTML and text editor for the Macintosh. I concur.
