Q: How can I get the full HTML source?

A: With IE5, you can get the source by using the HTML tags outerHTML property. With IE4 or IE3, you have to save the document to a file and then load the file into a TMemo, TStrings, etc.

var
  HTMLDocument: IHTMLDocument2;
  PersistFile: IPersistFile;
begin
  ...
  HTMLDocument := WebBrowser1.Document as IHTMLDocument2;
  PersistFile := HTMLDocument as IPersistFile;
  PersistFile.Save(StringToOleStr('test.htm'), True);

  while HTMLDocument.readyState <> 'complete' do
    Application.ProcessMessages;
     ...
end;

Note: You have to import the MSHTML type library and include the resulting MSHTML_TLB, as well as ActiveX, in your Uses clause
