HTML is a display language.  Why would you want to run a display language that doesn't display?

You need to further explain what you mean. Perhaps give an example. HTML is made up of simple characters, so in that respect it could be contained within a C program as a character array.

HTML is not "executable" -- as Kdo said, it's a static display language. You cannot run HTML, you can only use a browser to view an HTML file.  It would be best to just write a batch file that opened the html file in a browser ... e.g.

-- Batch file:
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IExplore.exe" C:\YourFile.html

If you really want your C executable to display your HTML page in a browser then look into the system() method, and make the same call you would make from the batch file.
    system( "IExplore.exe C:\YourFile.html" );

Well I dont know what to say but this is not what I wanted.. I saw some programs which runs html files without including them on the system.. they will just run from the exe.. maybe they were done with VB?

Yes, Visual Basic can display web pages in the EXE using the Microsoft Internet Controls component (shdocvw.dll).
