To analyze log files, it will be better to convert into csv file and
analyze in either MS Excel or Open Office.  I've seen many people prefer
csv files for log analysis.

In Windows, I have Notetab Light, Notepad++
[http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net]  and HTML Kit. All are free
solutions, and helps indenting html files.  Each has it's own strength &
I use each one of them for specific purposes.   Particularly, the
Notepad++ helps in finding the starting & closing tags of 'div's and
'table's, and collapsing a 'div'/'table' to follow the code easily.

Hope that helps.
