Search OuterText or OuterHTML

Using the browser control, sometimes a link renders error 404, page not found. I would like to know when this happens so as to respond accordingly. So, I ask you, Expert, what's the best way to search for the text "The page cannot be found"?

Many thanks in advance,

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use instr :

Private Sub WebBrowser1_DocumentComplete(ByVal pDisp As Object, URL As Variant)
Dim strText As String
strText = WebBrowser1.Document.documentelement.outertext
If InStr(strText, "No page to display") > 0 Then
        MsgBox "No Page"
ElseIf InStr(strText, "The page cannot be displayed") > 0 Then
        MsgBox "No Page"
End If
End Sub
