There are several aspects to this control. First, it is useful as a kind of HTML-based rich text control. You can load and retrieve the HTML source using simple string-based properties and methods. You have full read-write access to the HTML DOM, and you can also hook up event handlers so you can easily detect when the user clicks or types in the document, and which element is current. Mshtml itself is powerful, so you can use CSS, scripting, embedded controls etc. You can also turn off active content. By setting properties you can customize the control to hide IE, for example by assigning your own context menu. You can also print, using MSHTML print templates to get control over headers, footers, page numbers etc.

The utils class offers some methods for dealing with HTML documents without a GUI. You can load a document and parse it without having to display it.

The demo app has two parts, the control itself, and a simple winform demo. Some of the code lays the ground for hosting other kinds of document, such as Excel spreadsheets or Word documents. This is work in progess and contributions are welcome.
