Apparently it doesn't have a viewer. I got this from looking at the  
videos on the web site.

Now, why did I have to spend the time investigating this when you  
presumably already know this? I certainly have more pressing concerns  
(heck, I lost 1/4 of my shingles to a hurricane on Sunday!)

Bottom line: users of TextMate need to be the ones who know what it is  
(I would hope), and put it in the right place. This isn't a serious  
omission to either Clea or myself because we don't use it (apparently).

I'm trying to be rather pointed because Clea is not THE maintainer of  
the wiki, nor am I! Clea has put in a lot of effort on this, well  
beyond a reasonable amount. I can't fathom it being sustained, but it  
certainly isn't reasonable to turn Clea, me or any other person into a  
personal secretary. PLEASE read the first line on each page (where I  
remembered to put it. It states that the readers need to become the  
editors. Why send an email about a problem with the wiki when you can  
simply correct it? WE DON'T KNOW EVERYTHING! Please just fix the  
problems with the wiki. Even with all the work Clea has put into it,  
the wiki is far from done.
