I believe the editor of choice on Mac OS X these days is BBEdit -
again, a bit expensive. TextMate used to be good but there are
better ones out there now. Personally, I prefer the commandline
editors, vi or vim which is already installed on Mac OS X. I haven't
used the Xcode editor before but if it's what you're comfortable
with then it's probably best to stick with it.
