I hadn't thought of it as "immense", but I often edit Markdown documents with Jonathan Rentzsch's MarkdownLive (actually a slightly tweaked fork thereof). As completely basic as it is, I strongly prefer it over a plain text editor, even one that syntax-highlights. MarsEdit's live preview is pretty huge too.

I know a lot more great Markdown options have become available, just haven't gotten around to exploring them.
