I need to edit some htacess files. I learned the hard way the mess made of them when trying to just use dreamweaver. Suggestions?

Tex-Edit Plus works with Fetch (and possibly others) to edit text directly on the server. No need to download the file.

I use BBEdit + DaringFireball's Apache Configuration Language Module. The syntax highlighting helps a lot.

Is that the sort of thing you were looking for? You can also buy a more full-featured tool for editing Apache config files in GUI.

I use terminal and "pico -w .htaccess" or more correctly "nano -w .htaccess" :-)
