    I absolutely LOVE NotePad++ for PC, but I can't seem to find a suitable Mac alternative. The closest I've found is Taco HTML Edit, but there are some things it doesn't have (tabbed window, auto indenting, etc)

    is there an HTML editor that has syntax highlighting for java, php, ruby, etc.?

    WYSIWYG users can stay out :)

    TextMate has a 30-day trial. See what you think. Definitely worth the moneys.

    39 euros is more than $50 USD. That's more money than I've spent on software in my life.

    I'd pay $15 for a really nice HTML editor, but give me a break.

    edit: reading more about it, it seems like it's hands-down the best editor for Mac OS X. But for $50, c'mon

    any other editor is a waste of your time and money
