I use CF Studio.  I figure out these things using a couple techniques (in
order of priority):

1.  Indent in a consistent fashion.  Matching TABLE/TR/TD's should be on the
same column.
2. Hitting Ctrl-M when on a tag will find it's mate.
3. Use code-sweeper (built into CF Studio) to automagically indent tags.
4. Enabling the border on a table and inserting scaffolding at the front
tail end of table cells to try to sort out what's going on.
