You can use TextEdit to edit or display HTML documents as you’d see them in a browser (images may not appear), or in code-editing mode.

Note: By default, curly quotes and em dashes are substituted for straight quotes and hyphens when editing HTML as formatted text. (Code-editing mode uses straight quotes and hyphens.) To learn how to change this preference, see New Document options.

Create an HTML file

  1. In the TextEdit app on your Mac, choose File > New, then choose Format > Make Plain Text.

  2. Enter the HTML code.

  3. Choose File > Save, type a name followed by the extension .html (for example, enter index.html), then click Save.

  4. When prompted about the extension to use, click “Use .html.”

We're big fans of Markdown, the text-editing language that enables you to format, annotate, classify and link as you type with the minimum of fuss, and the superb WriteMonkey makes good use of it. Below HTML Saving Options, choose a document type, a style setting for CSS, and an encoding. Select “Preserve white space” to include code that preserves blank areas in documents. If you open an HTML file and don’t see the code, TextEdit is displaying the file the same way a browser would (as formatted text).

Always open HTML files in code-editing mode

  1. In the TextEdit app on your Mac, choose TextEdit > Preferences, then click Open and Save.

  2. Select “Display HTML files as HTML code instead of formatted text.”
