Since when is TextEdit an HTML viewer? I’ve never before had difficulty opening and editing an HTML file in Mac’s graphical “text editor.” I assume there’s been an update that’s added functionality that I neither needed nor wanted. It must be admitted, it’s no longer really very useful as a text editor, is it? Might as well change the name, Steve.

I guess I should go to confession and repent of my unfaithfulness to vi.

    Just came across this post… I see that it’s over a year old, but I just had the same problem and solution — vi. However, in investigating TextEdit’s preferences, I noticed that selecting “Ignore rich text commands in HTML files” solved the problem.
