The best Mac HTML editor?

Ask any Mac lover what the best HTML editor is and invariably, you will hear BBEdit back as the answer. I'm asking you though, is it really the best? It's almost worth keeping a PC around just to use Homesite. I'll take damn near any version of Homesite too: 4.0 - 5.5 +, whatever you've got. Homesite has code coloring, a folder interface for FTP sites, takes code snippets, browser preview and was originally developed by Nick Bradbury back in the days before it was a Macromedia product. I have Dreamweaver for Mac and PC but I think it's overkill for the most part. Does anyone have a favorite Mac HTML editor that isn't BBEdit or Dreamweaver?

I use SubEthaEdit for its live rendered view. It doesn't have much for site-management, though, but it's great for page design.

Ethan asked the same question on his blog, after switching to a mac and being disappointed with BBEdit (i was as well)

I use SubEthaEdit too. But I wish there were a simple WYSIWYG version as well. That would rock.

Cool, I'll give skEdit a try. I do feel like a bit like a Saturday spent entirely with a BBEdit manual would give me a greater appreciation for it, however I've got quesadillas to eat and bike rides to take. Saturdays are a precious commodity people!

BBEdit is urban legend. It's nice, but HomeSite still kicks its ass. Dreamweaver on Mac is still slow and less usable than the Windows version. But sadly it's the only thing with decent site management features. Mozilla Composer is the only other WYSIWYG editor that is tolerable. Hopefully NVU will come out with a Mac port soon. Also, Smultron is a new, decent text editor. smultron.sourceforge.net

Don;t knwo if this qualifies - Claris Home Page 3.0; still using it, see my webpage and webpages it links to. Can't handle php though. Runs on classic *oops!* though!

Two that I have tried in the last 60 days, just because I miss homesite so much. Taco (limited but has the structure I like), and pagespinner which I have to admit is pretty good. In the end, I am having to purchase a laptop that is PC just to run homesite unless I can find something in the next couple of months.

I just went through the StyleMaster tutorial. It's not really an HTML editor, but given that you should be working mostly with CSS nowadays anyway, it's pretty amazing. Simple, reasonably elegant, powerful...
I know you said... but... the new BBEdit 8 kicks much much ass. I'm never switching!

I use WebDesign and have been for about 3 years now. Its inexpensive, only $30 plus you get free web hosting with it so its a good deal. Its also got one of the best features that no other html editor for the mac that i have seen has which is collapsing text.
