Do you want to start a browser or open the web site internally in your app?

You can do it three ways:

1) use the inet control to capture the HTML as a data file
2) Launch the default browser to jump to the page
3) use the Web control to make your app show the page

Example code for #1 and #3 is available on my web page: www.cyberchute.com/rvbus/madmark
