Open URLs Quickly from BBEdit

If you're working on a bit of text (HTML or otherwise) in BBEdit, and you see a URL that you'd like to open, the fastest way is to Command-click it. Most BBEdit users probably already know this tip, but if you don't, it's a huge time-saver. (The same trick works in BBEdit's free little brother, TextWrangler.)

Optima System has released PageSpinner 2.1, the latest version of its shareware, text-oriented HTML authoring tool. Version 2.1 offers significant performance improvements and a revved-up text editor, along with support for HTML 4.0 and simultaneous multi-browser previews, backup commands, improved scriptability, and code-free assistance creating roll-over images and new windows via JavaScript. PageSpinner also comes with good online help and sensible examples ideal for Web authors who aren't afraid of HTML tags, but want a friendly environment that can both introduce Web authoring concepts and support sophisticated development. (We looked at PageSpinner 2.0.1 in "Spinning the Web Part I: Trade-offs and PageSpinner" in TidBITS 384.) PageSpinner is still $25 shareware; version 2.1 is a free upgrade to users who registered PageSpinner 2.x after 01-Jun-97, and other owners may qualify for a $15 upgrade pricing through March of 1999.
