Text editor for HTML that can display hex color code colors

So I use Smultron and have tried a few others but none have the built in capability to view what color is associated with a hex color assignment. For example the CSS code below assigns a color to a Horizontal Rule but what color? If I view this code in Firebug and rollover it with my mouse a pop-up with the color appears. This is the functionality I am after in an HTML editor. I know that it possible to edit and save changes in Firebug or Chrome but I like editing and writing code in a full page editor.

hr {
background: #ecec00;
color: #ecec00;
}

Thanks in advance for any insight you might have.
