I found the ShowHTMLDialog in MSDN that is very interesting . The problem is that since I work with plain API , I am not sure how I supply the dialog resource to the function and the other parameter's meaning . I would appreciate a piece of code that calls ShowHTMLDialog .

There's an example in the Internet Platform SDK (available at 'http://www.microsoft.com/msdn/sdk/platform.htm') named 'htmldlg'. Excerpt:
int PASCAL WinMain(  HINSTANCE hInstance,
                     HINSTANCE hPrevInstance,
                     LPSTR lpCmdLine,
                     int nCmdShow)
{
HINSTANCE   hinstMSHTML = LoadLibrary(TEXT("MSHTML.DLL"));

if(hinstMSHTML)
   {
   SHOWHTMLDIALOGFN  *pfnShowHTMLDialog;
     
   pfnShowHTMLDialog = (SHOWHTMLDIALOGFN*)GetProcAddress(hinstMSHTML, TEXT("ShowHTMLDialog"));

   if(pfnShowHTMLDialog)
      {
      IMoniker *pmk;
      TCHAR    szTemp[MAX_PATH*2];
      OLECHAR  bstr[MAX_PATH*2];

      lstrcpy(szTemp, TEXT("res://"));
      GetModuleFileName(hInstance, szTemp + lstrlen(szTemp), ARRAYSIZE(szTemp) - lstrlen(szTemp));
      lstrcat(szTemp, TEXT("/HTML_RESOURCE"));

      LocalToBSTR(bstr, szTemp, ARRAYSIZE(bstr));

      CreateURLMoniker(NULL, bstr, &pmk);

      if(pmk)
         {
         HRESULT  hr;
         VARIANT  varArgs, varReturn;
         
         VariantInit(&varReturn);

         varArgs.vt = VT_BSTR;
         varArgs.bstrVal = SysAllocString(L"Argument 1;Argument 2;Argument 3;Argument 4");

         hr = (*pfnShowHTMLDialog)(NULL, pmk, &varArgs, NULL, &varReturn);

         VariantClear(&varArgs);
         
         pmk->Release();

         if(SUCCEEDED(hr))
            {
            switch(varReturn.vt)
               {
               case VT_BSTR:
                  {
                  TCHAR szData[MAX_PATH];

                  BSTRToLocal(szData, varReturn.bstrVal, ARRAYSIZE(szData));

                  wsprintf(szTemp, TEXT("The selected item was \"%s\"."), szData);

                  VariantClear(&varReturn);
                  }
                  break;

               default:
                  lstrcpy(szTemp, TEXT("Cancel was selected."));
                  break;
               }
            MessageBox(NULL, szTemp, TEXT("HTML Dialog Sample"), MB_OK | MB_ICONINFORMATION);
            }
         else
            MessageBox(NULL, TEXT("ShowHTMLDialog Failed."), TEXT("HTML Dialog Sample"), MB_OK | MB_ICONERROR);
           
         }
      }
   FreeLibrary(hinstMSHTML);
   }

return 0;
}

I appreciate your answer jkr , but I already knew this . I want to display HTML in my app without the usage of MFC . Is there any API that enables you to show html without messing with IMoniker and Variants ?
