Something like this?

Private Sub Command1_Click()
WebBrowser1.Navigate2 "http://www.experts-exchange.com"
End Sub

Private Sub WebBrowser1_DocumentComplete(ByVal pDisp As Object, URL As Variant)
Dim pos1 As String, pos2 As String
Dim strData As String, SearchWord As String
strData = WebBrowser1.Document.Body.OuterText

SearchWord = "Puzzles"

pos1 = InStr(strData, SearchWord)
If pos1 > 0 Then
    MsgBox "String was found at position " & pos1
    MsgBox "String was not found"
End If
End Sub

Thanks, vinnyd79.

That was an example of what OuterText is, BobLamberson. As far as I know, OuterHTML is basically the same thing--it's not the html. It's the text that is rendered by the html.
