how the HTML file contents read from visual basic

P: 198
can any one help me by providing the method how i read the text from html file.
i did it by this method

Open newstr For Input As #1
While Not EOF(1)
Line Input #1, strtemp
txtfile = txtfile & strtemp
Close #1
If txtfind <> "" Then
If InStr(txtfile, txtfind) <> 0 Then
txtfile.SelStart = InStr(txtfile, txtfind) - 1
txtfile.SelLength = Len(txtfind)

with this code i transfer the whole text from html file into textbox "txtfile"
and then search the particular text using "Instr"function . all it works fine but
