Im doing a project on converting an HTML file into a well formatted version. To make the source code look 'nicer'.
Basically I have to take care of indentation and removing redundant tags.
Any suggestions of how I might tackle this problem?

Read in the file.
Parse it looking for specific no-no's
Replace those with prettier html
Write out the file.
Pretty straight forward.

The devil is in the details. The parsing is the hard part. The best way is to learn to use lexer and grammar generators.
