When I recently taught a beginning web coding course I told mac users they
would be fine to start out just using textedit. If you really want them to
get the advantage of color coding and other, more modern features, there
are also online editors like: that you can take a look at. Bluefish and
Eclipse work on mac, although I don't know what kind of legacy support they
have. Seems like it would be strong, though, since Eclipse is very widely
used and has been around forever.
