Load text into TwebBrowser

I have a string list containing some HTML text and I would like to display it in a TwebBrowser component. I want a way of doing this without writing the string list to a file and then opening the file with the webBrowser's exec method. Can I somehow use the wbeBrowser's .Document property?

Thanks - Dan

hi,
this tests ok:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
mystr : tstringlist;
begin
mystr := tstringlist.create;
mystr.add('<b>hello</b>');
mystr.add('<br>');
mystr.add('<i>hello</i>');
WebBrowser1.Navigate('about:'+mystr.Text);
mystr.free;
end;

or if you have a stream:

uses activex;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  ms : TMemoryStream;
begin
    webBrowser1.navigate('about:blank');
    while webBrowser1.busy do
          application.processMessages;
    ms := TMemoryStream.create;
    memo1.lines.saveToStream(ms);
    ms.seek(0, 0);
    (webBrowser1.Document as IPersistStreamInit).Load(TStreamAdapter.Create(ms));
    ms.free;
end;
