Perhaps the easiest thing to do is use TextMate's web preview  
facility.  press ⌃⌥⌘P to invoke it.
at the bottom of the Web Preview window is a check box that says  
“show options”.  A drawer appears, and you may choose to “pipe  
text through” a script of your choosing.  Pipe it through tth.

We could also make a simple command to do this job.  Set the contents  
of the command to this paste:
Set “Save: Nothing”, “Input: Entire Document” and “Output:  
Show as HTML”. This command should work whether or not you've saved  
the document you are editing.
