Text Editing App For Mac

TextEdit User Guide

You can use TextEdit to edit or display HTML documents as you’d see them in a browser (images may not appear), or in code-editing mode.

Note: By default, curly quotes and em dashes are substituted for straight quotes and hyphens when editing HTML as formatted text. (Code-editing mode uses straight quotes and hyphens.) To learn how to change this preference, see New Document options.
