I am reviewing IIS logs and have a general understanding of the various commands that I am seeing such as:
PROPFIND
GET
OPTIONS (no so much so)
Is there a website someone can refer me to where I can get the explanations to these and a few more commands that I am seeing in these IIS logs?

Website is good for understanding the codes, however would like to see more explanation of the breakdown of each portion of the IIS log and what it means.
