[Moin-user] External Editor on Mac OS X Server

I have configured the browser and edited the .zope-external-edit file 
to no avail. I'm afraid there must be more to it than that to get it 
to work on Mac OS X with a Mac editor such a BBEdit which is the one 
I would like to use.

If anyone finds a way to do this, please post it.
