I use TextWrangler, which should be very similar to BBEdit.

My script is

          tell application "TextWrangler"
             set NAME to file of front text window
             save NAME
          end tell

          tell application "TeXShop"
             open NAME
             tell document NAME of application "TeXShop"
             end tell
          end tell

       on error error_number
          display dialog error_number buttons {"OK"} ¬
             default button 1 with icon 1 ¬
             giving up after 5
       end try

and added a button for executing it in TextWrangler. Once in TeXShop, 
if I want to recompile I have to have the pdf window active and then 
use command-T. Of course, TeXShop is set for "use with external 
editor". This works fine for me.

What I don't know how to do is to go to the error line in the 
TextWrangler window directly from TeXShop's console. Any ideas?
