webbrowser control: Accessing the HTML of frames

I cant figure out how to access the html of frames in the web browser control in the document_complete event. The document available there is just the frameset document. I can get the number of frames with
document.frames.ItemCount (if I remember correctly)
but not a usable reference or the HTML of any of them. I've tried
document.frames.item(0), document.frames.item(1), etc.
but cant get anything at all from the resulting object.
For a non-framset document.body.outerHTML gets what I want - how can I get this for all of the frames inside a frameset document?
P.S.  I have to use this control and not the Internet Transfer Control or Winsock.

When it walks through the frames, this example pulls out the HTML BODY...
