VB adding a HTML file as a resource

I have an html file that I would like to embed in a VB executable as a resource. Then I would like to access the embedded html resource using the res: protocol.

1. How can I compile the html file as a resource? Do I need a seperate resource compiler?
2. Then how to access the html file using the internet explorer res: protocol?
   (The code is in the same exe file)

It looks like the VB resource editor might import it once I can get the html file into a res file???
