I've become fond of TextMate lately. It's a fairly new editor and is
missing some features, but what it does it does well. It has good
project organization and makes it easy to switch between files in your
project. The really spiffy thing, though, is that it is very easily
extended via Unix filters. So, you can make filters that do anything
to your text in any language (eg Python) and have the result pop back
into your buffer. There are a fair number of add-ons available already
(because of how easy it is to extend), but they're only accessible via
a Subversion repository at the moment.
TextMate is $39, which is infinitely more than free, but considerably
less than BBEdit.
