The simplest technique is described here:

It boils down to opening a dummy page and then filling the innerHTML of the DOM 'body' element with your in-memory HTML.

There are other ways, but this is very easy to implement and will work in nearly all cases.  When there are images and so forth, you must provide a correct URL or file path for each (obviously, such objects are not actually part of the HTML source and the browser needs to obtain and load them separately).

A couple of other techniques are covered here:

including how to put the whole page -- including images and other external objects -- into a resource in a DLL or the EXE that hosts the browser control.

Yea sure i have,

I just wondered if il have the whole page inc Head- and Meta-tags in lets say a string is there a way to pass it to the IHTMLDocument2 or must i separete it into Head and Body by my self?

These questions did appear then i was using IXSLProcessor i thougt it was stupid to make an output to a file if il already have it in memory.

Maybe you have used it, and know a smoth way?

Thanks

Sure!  It's all available in the DOM -- there's a HUGE section on these things in MSDN.  Give it a try!
