Lightweight, Tabbed Rich Text Editor for the Mac

I have recently made the complete switch to Mac and I am now looking for the Mac equivalent to Trangolos Keynote, a very simple program I use to manage my to do lists (http://www.tranglos.com/free/keynote.html) . Basically, the program I need is a rich text editor (bold, hyperlink support, etc) with tabs.

I have tried a number of different text editors over the last couple of days but they all either have way to many features (i.e Circus Ponies Notebook) or are geared toward coding (TextMate is great but overkill for my purpose).

If Mac's default text editor had tabs I would be set. Is anyone aware of a lighweight, tabbed Rich Text editor for the Mac?

I appreciate your help and highly recommend the switch :)

Try the following .. both FREE and both support multi-pages


Finally, this is a great editor for cross-network sharing of files and the Tabs are nice too!! Not FREE though

Hi eoinosullivan,

Thanks for the comment. SubEthaEdit is really close but does not do RTF. Do you know of any program that has tabs like SubEthaEdit but can manage rich text?

I have gotten over my reliance on RTF and I am now using TextWrangler as my primary text editor. It is great! Thanks for the tip.
