Is there a free or inexpensive text editor (HTML / CSS) that displays in color: MAC?

    I have a 60 something year old in my 'intro to web' class. He uses a mac. The rest of the class uses Notepad++ which works great.

    I hate to see this guy shell out money for a one time class. He's just having fun in his retirement years...

    Is there something that is free or cheap that shows the html/css tags in color and displays line numbers, like a normal editor does?

    Thanks

    Text Wrangler should work well enough. It's what I used on my Mac until I discovered Sublime Text.
