I use IWebBrowser2 object in my application and I want to
add some features to my application, such as highlight,
translation (from English to Chinese), etc. I'm not
familiar with this object. So I would like to know how to
access the content the object navigate?

There is a DOM (Document Object Model) that lets you access any part of the page.  A good starting point for learning this is by playing around in JavaScript.  Bring up MDSN help on DHTML and write small scripts to access things such as body.bgcolor and so forth.  

Why would I suggest using JScript?  Because C++ makes it very difficult to use COM objects.  Bizarre error occur; text data is in BSTR format an VARIANT data types so each little thing you need to do takes many complex steps in C++.  With JScript it is a snap.  And the objects, methods and attributes are all the same -- so anything you learn can be translated into useful C++ knowledge.

>>I'm not familiar with this object.
The documentation in MDSN is usually geared toward accessing the object via VB or JScript.  However, there are many examples of C++ access, starting here:

Driller (MFC Sample):

Access the DOM using an HTA and JScript:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/downloads/samples/internet/browser/simplehta/default.asp

WalkAll accesses the DOM to look at each element:
