Viewing log4net files in notepad++


If you're a frequent user of notepad++ and log4net - here is a nice trick I've discovered, that brings a synergism between two. As you know - notepad++ has an option to highlight syntax for subset of supported languages. It is either applied automatically, based on the file extension or could be chosen manually from the Language menu.
And here is the trick - just select VB language for opened log4net file (<Alt>+L,V,Enter) and you have a very readable syntactic highlights.
