Web Browser using VB 5

Question:
I am currently writing software that will act as client and server software for a small ISP. I was wondering if there is any way to view web pages using Visual Basic. Maybe in a Picbox or something. I know that it is possible because I have seen it done before. I would be most grateful if you could solve my problem. I need to know how it would be accessed? How it would be viewed? And, what to use to view it.

Answer:
Sax Software makes a control called Webster that already knows how to display HTML and web pages. Using that control (which is under $100) lets you avoid installing a third-party web browser. I would not recommend attempting to build it yourself -- there are a number of features that would be very difficult to build.
