    I have been using OS X for a while now, and love it, but I have discovered something really nasty.

    In *Nix systerms, like OS X, files that begin with a period (.) are considered hidden, and so OS X's Finder, as well as program "Open" dialogs, *do not show the .htaccess file*.

    Is there any way, short of using Terminal (the command line), to view these files? Playing around it Finder's Preferences did not seem to help.

    I know a lot of web designers use Apple. Can anyone help me out?

    More regularly for a UNIX system, running [minicode]ls -a[/minicode] will display all files, including hidden ones. Also, typing something like [minicode]vim .filename[/minicode] will open the file, even if it doesn't show up in the regular listing. It's entirely possible that the open dialog may allow you to just type the filename, though I have this sneaking suspicion that the OS X dialog is retarded and doesn't, in the tradition of Apple dumbing some things down a little too much. I can't recall, though, as I don't touch OS X too often.
