BBEdit is not (and never has been) free. BBEdit _lite_ has always been 
free, AFAIK. It's not an older version - just a version with fewer 
capabilities. Still, it's _very_ useful, and should be on everybody's 
hard drive. The current version (I think, anyway it's the last I heard 
about) is 4.6, and it should be downloadable from 
<http://www.barebones.com>. If you need great HTML editing features, 
etc., then buying the "full" version is worthwhile.

It's _NOT_ a word processor, so don't be disappointed. It's a "text 
editor" only!

Along the same lines, I swear by TexEdit+
A super text editor with a small RAM footprint that is constantly being 
A must-have along the lines of BBEdit
