SciTE [ http://www.scintilla.org ]

Not strictly Mac OSX, its Linux based, so should run on OSX. Has 
function completion, case folding, syntax highlighting, yada yada plus 
its free.

Other Linux-based editors that you could give a try :

Screem [ http://www.screem.org/ ]
Quanta [ http://quanta.sourceforge.net/ ]
vim/gvim [ http://www.vim.org/ ]
