BBEdit 4.5.1... and 4.5.1a

BBEdit 4.5.1... and 4.5.1a -- Last week, Bare Bones Software released an update to BBEdit, a widely used text, HTML, and programming editor. According to the press release, the new BBEdit 4.5.1 supports HTML tags for style sheets, frames, scripts, and applets, plus provides enhanced HTML updating and validation. Other changes include welcome improvements to TableBuilder, enhancements to the Find Differences command, and support for longer search strings. Unfortunately, the rollout of BBEdit 4.5.1 wasn't smooth: the original BBEdit 4.5.1 update had a small problem, so Bare Bones released two new updaters for BBEdit 4.5.1a: a complete 2.3 MB "4.5.1 updater" (which, despite its confusing name, updates 4.5 to version 4.5.1a) and a smaller "4.5.1a" update only for people who installed the flawed 4.5.1.
