I just purchase BBEdit after using Text Wrangler by BareBones Software for quite awhile. I have been using Markdown with the Squarespace editor but I wanted to move to using a good text editor for most of my writing. After hearing so many great things about BBEdit, I decided to make the plunge.
If you write for any online presence – particularly blogs – and you are not a dedicated HTML junkie but still long to have more formatting control over your posts, Markdown written by John Gruber of Daring Fireball fame, may be the tool for you. Markdown is a recognized framework of web formatting tags that gives you control over things such as:
- Header size
- Type size
- Bold, italics, and underlining
- Quote blocks
- Ordered and unordered lists
