You'll probably want to create a command with HTML output, which reads that file and processes it.  Or it might be better to alter your small program so that it writes "error.html" instead of "error.txt."  Depends on if your small program is used for other things, too, I guess.  Personally, I'd consider writing a small Ruby script that opens "error.txt" and parses it, outputting HTML.

So, there is a txmt protocol that you can use in HTML links that TextMate receives and understands.  See this:
