Problem with WebBrowser.Navigate()

Hello Delphi experts!

I need to do a Webbrowser.Navigate with POST. That means, I use Webrowser.Navigate(Url, Flags, Target, PostData). Url is of type WideString, Flags, Target und PostData of var OleVariant. Please read http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/browser/webbrowser/reference/Methods/Navigate.asp

As for PostData, Microsoft said: http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q174/9/23.ASP

I wondered very much about that PostData needs an ANSI string. As every Delphi expert knows that in OleVariant variables only WideString values can be stored.

Please look hard at the

PostData = StrConv(PostData, vbFromUnicode)

statement in the Visual Basic example how to use PostData. How to do the same in Delphi?? Or does someone know how to use the PostData in another way?
