I thought of a better way of getting around the .htaccess files being invisible in the finder.
1. Make a text file called htaccess
2. Right click on the text file and make an alias of it
3. Head over to the terminal and type: mv /path/to/htaccess /path/to/.htaccess
4. Back into the finder: rename htaccess alias to htaccess and voila
you now have a .htaccess file that can be opened with the gui text editor of your choice from the finder (though the alias which is not hidden)


Enjoy!
