My "Leopard Dark 2" GUI replacement
http://wiki.macromates.com/Main/AlternativeGUIs does help a bit.

Also check out my subtleGradient.tmbundle on GitHub:

If you set up the
subtlegradient.tmbundle/Support/bin/42_TextMate_live_preview.rb file
as your filter through command in the web preview window you can get
live html and CSS previews. You have to set the url to use for
previewing css first. There's a command to do that for you too.
