Mac .htaccess textedit problem

Hello,

I'm editing my htaccess file using Microsoft word. Saving file as Mac OS in Microsoft word. I can't get textedit to do it. It keeps trying to tell me that I can no longer save the file in Mac OS.

How do I work with this .htaccess file? I know it's something simple.

Never Ever edit a web page file like htaccess or javascript or HTML in Microsoft Word.     When you save it, it is no longer plain text which is what is required.  Go back to your Word version and export it as plain text.

That's right. Henceforth edit it either using TextEdit (which is on your Mac in the /Applications folder) or download the excellent freeware text editor, TextWrangler:  http://www.barebones.com/products/textwrangler/

I'm using textwrangler. It's still giving me an error. Would it be safe to paste my file contents here in a thread? I save it as UTF-8 with Unix line breaks and it still doesn't work

I use TextWrangler on my Mac too.  As long as there are no passwords, you can paste it here.  And if you are saving it as UTF-8, you need to make sure there is no 'BOM' at the beginning.  The commands that go in .htaccess are normally just ASCII though.  File and directory names may not be.  And the default charset for Apache most of the time is either not stated or ISO-8859-1 (Latin 1).

Got this. For some reason there were question marks (?) interspersed in the redirect lines.

Thanks guys, sorry it took so long - I don't work on this site very often
