just wondering, what does slickedit's *editor* have that textmate doesn't? I
played around with it for a trial period and eventually decided to stick
with textmate, because i found all the same editor features and a much nicer
native interface (and i'm pretty intolerant when it comes to non-native
interfaces so it was worth losing the ide features).
