Default raw log files

i guys, have a question about raw log files. I understand the basic breakdown of what the file can give you isp, time etc. But can they tell you what a user actually did - i.e. not just the pages they visited. Specifically say a website was edited, would the log file tell you what was edited on that page down to details of word's changed etc. Or is that information not obtainable? Does this vary depending on the structure of the site?

If this is unclear please ask and I'll try to clarify - would really appreciate a response.

As above - much more information is needed. All a log file is is a file that stores, well, logs of some sort. As to what those logs are, it depends entirely on the application that created them, and there's no way of even guessing what could be in them unless we know that application!
