TextWrangler and special characters


Hey readers, all seven of you, can you help me out?

I’m perhaps finally switching to a Mac-native text editor, TextWrangler, or if I really like it, BBEdit. Within that app, what’s the easiest way to enter unusual characters not found on a keyboard, say Å¡ (Latin s with háček) or ḫ (h-breve below)? In jEdit, one can set up longer strings that get automatically converted into harder-to-type ones. What’s the equivalent in TextWrangler or BBEdit? -m

  1. Have you tried oXygen? Excellent text editor for a great many formats (in addition to XML languages, I write a lot of JS there). You can also have an author/wysiwyg perspective and connect to MarkLogic.

    It is platform agnostic (java) and can run standalone or in eclipse.

  2. I use the Mac OS X Character Palette, available from the International control panel (Input Menu). This allows you to browse and search for characters as well as set up favorites for quick access.
