TeachText (MacOSX,certainly in 10.2, probably also 10.1) 
may not be an  optimal editor but it allows to save scripts 
as text only: you may chose "New Document 
Attributes=plain text" in the Preferences.

I don't seem to have TeachText (on 10.2), are you sure it is part 
of the basic installation?

Sorry: This concerns really TextEdit
(mentioned in above node 5  Macintosh Library Modules  1.1.1 
How to run a Python script ) which allows PlainText by prefs. The 
first versions on OS-10.0 probably did not (or I realized it only 
later). Problems with line endings should be solved in 2.3

I think you mean TextEdit, not TeachText... but yes, it can save 
files in plain text, though not by default.
