  • Hi,

    I believe that is Internet Explorers engine; the DOM.

  • For example, you need to reference this dll when you want to access the underlying HTML document of a WebBrowser control.

    IHTMLDocument2 htmlDocument = (IHTMLDocument2)webBrowser.Document;

  • MSHTML.DLL is the library file that contains the HTML viewer used by Microsoft Internet Explorer.

  • MSHTML was introduced in Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0. It is the main HTML component of the Windows Internet Explorer browser and can be used in other applications. It hosts Microsoft ActiveX Controls and supports the OLE Control '96 (OC96) specification for windowless controls.
