As you can tell by my botched intial reply to this I am left-brained, I am also
using a Mac...
For those folks out there who are doing the same I am finding BBedit to be a good
editor. Although I just started with it, it is miles ahead of anything else I've used
so far and it is now built into Dreamweaver for the Mac crowd.

Lots of useful features besides not turning your code into the Dead Sea Scrolls, templates, includes,
scripting, and easy macros.
