Let's say I had something like this in a forms load event.
    Dim xxx As HTMLDocument
    Set xxx = New HTMLDocument    
    xxx.body.innerHTML = "<body><p>what the hell</p></body>"

and on the form I have a webBrowser Object called wbMain.  How do I get the HTMLDocument into wbMain.  

I don't care if I have to save to a file first then navigate wbMain to it.  I just need to be able to dynamically generate html and get it into a webBrowser object?

Save your document to the harddrive. Then all you need to do is navigate it to the file:

Call wbMain.Navigate2("c:\test.html")

Never mind I just got it.
    wbDetails.Document.writeln ("<body style=""font-family: verdana;"">")
    wbDetails.Document.writeln ("<div>This actually works!</div>")
    wbDetails.Document.writeln ("</body>")
    wbDetails.Refresh

Does exactly what I was looking for, so the first person who answers with the above solution gets the points.

To be fair, you should give points to Flembosa or ask for a refund.

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    'create document...
    Call wbDetails.Navigate("about:blank")
    'modify document...
    Call wbDetails.Document.write("<body style='font-family: verdana;'>")
    Call wbDetails.Document.write("<div>This actually works!</div>")
    Call wbDetails.Document.write("</body>")
    'retrieve document's body's html (if you'd like to save programmatically)...
    Debug.Print wbDetails.Document.body.outerHTML
    'prompt "save" dialog...
    Call wbDetails.Document.execCommand("SaveAs")
End Sub

Of course, if the HTMLBody is already created, you can directly modify it's outer/inner html via wbDetails.Document.Body.
