Anybody using the MSHTML editor in VB?

I'd like to include a WYSIWYG HTML editor in an application, but pretty much all the information I found on MSDN is for either C++, JScript, or JavaScript. Anybody knows of a good article on how to work with this ActiveX control in a VB application?

For those interested, here's some info on this free control which, as far as I can tell, is a more recent version of the DHTML Editing Control that came with IE 4:

Thank you

I'm pretty sure Joel does in CityDesk, so he likely knows it front to back. He might chime in here, but you could as on the Ask Joel forum too.

He's commented on his experiences with it here too, so you might want to search for it too (on google using site:discuss.fogcreek.com is best).

Thx, I forgot about the "site:" thingie in Google :-)

I went through the two pages returned by Google, and looked at the following ActiveX controls in addition to MSHTML:

- Think HTML
- XStandard

I'll go ask next door if Joel has some links on using the MSHTML widget from VB. Thank you.
