How do I make a static text (URL in a dialog) into a hyperlink?

I need to include a URL to  a web site in a dialog, such that:
- It will appear in underlined blue font.
- It will change color to red and turn the cursor into the standard hand pointer when moused over.
- It will launch the URL in a new browser window when clicked.

I need to add this to a VC++ 6.0 app using MFC.

Advice appreciated!

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
