I think (?) you were saying you use TM instead of a browser to check 
your HTML code. I set up the following Command because i couldn't find 
one 'built-in', in an attempt to mimic your workflow:
save: nothing
command: cat
input: entire document (or selected text, according to taste)
output: show as html
activation: ctrl-alt-cmd + r

this pops the selection up in a window within TM, rendered as HTML. It 
works fine.

My question is whether this was a built-in command i missed in the 
menus, or your own invention ...
