How to improve readability of some tag soup with Editplus

Today I discovered a simple trick to make very long lines of ( XML or HTML ) tags more readable using Editplus.

Here we go:

Note that the “Regular expression” feature needs to be turned on for this to work. This will add a newline to each tag closing bracket and thus convert long lines of tag soup into multiple lines where each tag has its own line of text.

I tried to achieve the same with Notepad++ but failed so far.
