Tools to view content of mdf and ldf files

Are there any good tools that let me view the database content of mdf and ldf files?

Viewing the raw contents of the mdf file is not allowed. You can view the contents of each page using the dbcc page command. You can access the transaction log by using Log Explorer from Lumigent Technologies.
