This is probably a simple question, but its late and I'm too tired to deal with it.  (Plus I've got points to burn)

I'm trying to retrieve a page using the Inet control, however, it does not return the entire page, only a fraction of it.  For example:

page = Inet1.OpenURL("http://www.msn.com/")

This returns only:

<html><head><base href="http://g.msn.com/0US!s5.31472_315529/" /> ....other stuff.... <a href="73.a5539/2??cm=LeftNav8">Tec

And that's precisely where it ends.  I've tried using Winsock to do this, and I've had the most success with it, but for some reason its tacking random strings of three/four characters onto the beginning of its data chunck.  But anyways, I'm rambling...

Thanks for your time, guys!
