firstly join the BBEdit list for general help - you have a very powerful
program there! They will be helpful to a newcomer.


secosdly, I use BBEbit with TeXshop via this script (originally posted
here at my request)

tell application "BBEdit"
    save active document of text window 1
    set texdatei to file of active document of text window 1
end tell

tell application "TeXShop"
    open texdatei
end tell

f it's a new document it will prompt you for a name - make sure you add
the suffix 'tex'. 
Tell Texshop to use an external text editor in the preferences, assign a
keyboard shortcut to it (via the Scripts Palette in BBEdit) and you're
away. I am sure iTeXMac will also do it. 

There are other possibilities - it depends what you want to do. But that
works nicely for me.

THat is a start...have fun and ask for help... you may find it more
appropriate to ask on the BBEdit list - and nearly all the same people
will answer!
