To show a html file that is already saved on your harddisk, do this:
  ShellExecute(Application.Handle,'Open','c:\htmlPath\htmlFile.htm',nil,nil,SW_SHOWNORMAL);
To download a html file and save it on your harddisk, either use the components that are shipped with Delphi or look at these pages, there are some freeware components for this purpose, too:

Delphi Super Page:   http://nswt.tuwien.ac.at/delphi/index.htm
Torry's Page:          http://www.torry.ru/

Make sure "shellapi" is in your uses clause if you want to use shellexecute.

By the way, as Madshi said, the ShellExecute function will only display a html document already on your hard disk--it will not download from the internet.

Hi,

There is a component that serves as a wrapper for MS Internet Explorer v 3 and higher. If you search through http://sunsite.icm.edu.pl/delphi/ and http://www.torry.ru you will most likely find it. I can't remember its name but it is freeware. A search for HTML/ Internet Explorer should help you. If you can't find it I can mail you a copy. Contact me on fredrik.larsson@larsson.tc.

Regards, Fredrik Larsson.

One more thing...
If you want to use Delphi's own component then check out the \samples\activex directory where there is a demo of a webbrowser. /Fredrik.
