Just open them in any text editor. On mac many defaults text editors come with standard installation.

BTW, I have noticed that certain jsx files, since they are text files, depending upon where they are from, do not treat the carriage return / line feed properly, which causes problems on Mac and Windows, depending upon whether carriage return was missing or not.

A simple solution are utilities mac2unix, dos2unix, unix2dos, etc. Please search for them on the Internet.

I think AE comes with a script editor and you can use that also.

ULTRAEDIT (http://www.ultraedit.com/) - the best text editor I've ever used for windows. Can also color code and accept color code template for an astounding variety of script & programming languages. Can also do dos/unix formatting conversions if needed.

emacs and its graphical version Xemacs are also great, and are free. Eclipse is also great -- but I think its overkill for a simple task of jsx editing.

Are you talking about JSX files? It's helpful but not required to know Java/C++ for scripting in JSX, as the syntex is similar. Javascript is closest, and is recommended for programming in JSX.
