I think the closest you'll get to hypercard is <a href="http://www.apple.com/applescript/macosx/ascript_studio/" target="_blank">AppleScript Studio</a>, which is free. But no more Hypertalk.

Why would you want SimpleText over TextEdit?

Simpletext for OS X can be found on the developer CD.

I am used to doing all my html editing on Simpletext, and TextEdit is not suitable for this.

I'm sure all of you will ask "why not use BBEdit?" but the truth is I like using a simple text editor that launches in 1 second and saves all files as text only.

And BBEdit Lite doesn't do this?

It's free, launches in 5 bounces, and saves in text only with the option of Windoze, Mac, and UNIX line breaks! Plus a killer search feature.

Why not TextEdit? Just select PlainText as format for new Documents and "ignore RTF in HTML" and deselect append .txt to name.

This way all new documents will be plain text display html files as source and you can name your *.html files like they should be named file.html.

I really like TextEdit.

Geez... maybe it was too obvious. Thanks. Well, thanks to the fact that I bought full OS X, I can still use SimpleText if I want

By the way, I love documentation in OS X that has the .rtfd extension. Every time I laugh to myself as I am thinking "Read The Fycking Documentation!"

Try iBuild for a substitute for hypercard.
