I hope this is not inappropriate, but I would like to mention  
TextMate at this point (I think it was already mentioned in the  
past). It is not free like TextWrangler, but reasonably prized for  
what it can do, and really spectacular in what it can do (in my  
opinion). I am not the developer for it, though I do a lot of work in  
the LaTeX "bundle" part of it. It has some Fortran support, though  
not sure how good it is. Comes with a 30 day fully functional test  
period. It could actually be set to syntax highlight Fortran code in  
LaTeX lstlisting environments etc.
You can see some of what it can do in a couple of screecasts I've  
prepared, that can be found here:

Let me just emphasize again that I do not have anything to gain, I  
just happen to have found my life completely changed since I started  
using TextMate, and hence "advertize" it when I get the chance. My  
apologies if this post is in any way inappropriate.
