Wow! I shelled out for Texts, MultiMarkdown Composer, and iA Writer before settling a couple of months ago on Byword. And then I discovered LightPaper this afternoon by fluke. It's easily a Byword competitor in terms of versatility, elegance, and simplicity, but it excels the good folks at Metaclassy by being free. Bravo and thanks!
