TextWrangler is a good free text editor with syntax highlighting (there are heaps around that are free and will do the same job, this is just the one I like most).
CyberDuck is an SSH/FTP client which is DonationWare so you can use it for free but it will occasionally nag you for donations. Not very often, I think only once every time you upgrade it.
They work well together: I can get CyberDuck to connect to the Dreamhack site via SSH (bookmark the site and it saves my password/username etc.). CyberDuck shows me the directory structure and I find the file I want to edit then right-click on it and select Edit With -> TextWrangler and every time I save the file in TextWrangler it's automagically uploaded to the Dreamhack.
Saves me having to remember stuff. CyberDuck remembers my passwords and all, and TextWrangler remembers where the file is and the combination remembers to upload the changes when I make them. Less remembering = less silly mistakes. I make enough silly mistakes in my code, I don't need the "forgot to upload the file!" silly mistakes as well!
