Unless I've missed it, none of the text editors mentioned here do something I consider a must--the ability to begin reading a text aloud from the cursor point. Only the venerable Tex-Edit Plus does that, which is why I've stuck with it rather than move to the prettier face of TextMate.

Lots of application will start reading from the beginning of a document or read a highlighted block, probably because OS X makes programming that easy. But for spotting typos in a text or for comparing an electronic copy to the original printed version (including code in a book), reading aloud from the cursor point on it a must.

That's the first feature I check when I download a new text editor, and up to now I've been disappointed.
