In VB6 put the Internet Control and a ListBox.
Then this code:
--------------------------------------------

 Dim str As String
  Dim ary() As String
  List1.Clear
 
  DoEvents
 
strHTML = Inet1.OpenURL(Trim("xxxxxxxx"), icString)

         str = strHTML
         ary = Split(str, vbLf)
         Dim x As Integer
         For x = 0 To UBound(ary)
            If ary(x) <> "" Then
                List1.AddItem (ary(x))
          End If
         Next
-----------------------------------------------
for "xxxxxxxx" put in:
http://www.USATODAY.com 
and try it. YOu see the list box fills with text.
Now try:
http://www.whitepages.com/search/ReverseAddress?site_id=10583&street=7004%20POTTER%20RD&where=14047
and see the list box does not fill. Why ?
If you put the last URL into a browser.. you get a page and page source. ?
That is what I'm trying to get into the list box...page source for that URL.

Try using Winsock control.
Sample code can be found at:
http://www.ostrosoft.com/vb/projects/get_html_source.asp 

Tried both URLs and they work OK with above code.

The second link returns:
