Nisus Writer Express 1.0, a US$59.95 word processor for Mac OS X (10.2 and higher), is now available from Nisus Software.
Nisus Writer Express can read and write documents in Unicode, RTF, RTFD, plain text, and Microsoft Word format. It sports a customizable interface; AppleScript and Perl macros; noncontiguous selection; keyboard shortcuts; a Document Manager; three-level Find and Replace including Regular Expressions (GREP); multiple editable clipboards; and document window zoom.
