1. I’m pretty happy with Marsedit, but I’m a long-time plain text coder (currently Textmate), so the lack of RTE doesn’t bother me. But I think you’re missing a strong 4th option: the Scribefire plug-in for Firefox. Not Mac-specific, but it does most of what this competition does just fine on a Mac and can work offline. Even if you use Safari to browse, there’s a good case for installing Firefox and Scribefire as a free and competitive alternative.

  2. Have you contacted Daniel Jalkut about your suggestions for MarsEdit yet? Seems like a reasonable request.

    I’m not really (uh, what do you call it, blogging?) these days, but I have an ME 1.x license and I’d probably upgrade to 2 if I was doing any high-volume work.

  3.
