Gerry Gerry Nano is quite user-friendly, IMO, and it's really annoying to try to edit something with root privileges from the GUI. If anything, you'll find it next to impossible to edit these files in TextEdit. Also, it is not unreasonable to expect some aquaintance with the console from any aspiring web developer.

I agree that a GUI text editor is probably a better approach for people who are not programmers or who don't have much unix experience, however, TextEdit is the wrong application to advise using simply because it defaults to a variable-width font and rich text. This can cause all sorts of problems beyond the simple usability nightmare of writing code in variable-width that will be extremely difficult or impossible for this person to debug.
