Couldn't let this pass...BBEdit is probably the most scriptable
application available!

what in particular did you want? I can't imagine using anything else. I
did my book (out any day) in BBEdit with LaTeX. The glossaries (for
adding commands etc) are very powerful and the scripting is also second
to none. There is a very helpful list for scripting BBEdit too. And I am
injured so almost everything I do at the moment is via Applescript in
BBEdit using iListen.

Post some specifcs? (eg about the soft/hard wrap - I don't know exarctly
what the problem is there for you). Also say which version as things
changed in the recent v.8. I will try to help but it's painstaking with
one hand/iListen - can I refer you to their list?

Maarten is there too...and others from here...there are a few very good
scripters using TeX and BBEdit.
