Those who use TextMate together with John Gruber's Markdown to write 
for the web might be interested in HumaneText.service, which I 
discovered via Merlin Mann's 43 Folders site.

HumaneText is an easy-to-use OS X service that, by combining Markdown, 
SmartyPants, and html2text, enables you to convert Markdown-formatted 
text to XHTML and vice versa.

You can download HumaneText Service No. 4 here:

I've found that TextMate combined with Markdown is a marvellous web 
writing environment and HumaneText makes it nearly perfect.
