But since this has nothing to do with the HTML control, it was irrelevant.
You only
stated it because you were confused and believed that removing IE would
remove the HTML
control, which you had already been told was not how it worked

What is your definition of "removing IE"? There are 3rd party apps that (I
believe) mshtml.dll, shdocvw.dll, as well as iexplore.exe.

I was not insulting you. I was pointing out that you were confused. You
clearly were
confused. So why is pointing it out considered an insult?


That documentation is confused also.


If you had read this and believed it, then you would be confused. You
would be confused
because Microsoft has bad docs, but it doesn't mean you are not confused.


So I have no problem telling MS that they, too, are confused.

If there is a life lesson to learn here it is that some people find being
told that they are "confused" to be insulting, and some people don't. I
myself become a bit defensive at the term, although I've learned to quickly
tell myself that the person calling me confused is uncouth, but that he may
have a point. In this case, I don't think Simon was confused. He was
concerned the user would have deleted necessary DLL's required for CHtmlView
to work properly. Whether you call that "removing IE" or not is beside the
point and should have been obvious without splitting hairs of what that

But anyone who "uninstalls" IE is essentially asking for serious problems.
Note that
"uninstalling" is not the same as "changing the default browser". You do
not need to
support every possible weird software configuration in the world. You
should not worry
about people uninstalling IE. It isn't a common practice.

I agree, and this is the answer to the question, not some discourse into
what it means to remove IE, or what does it mean to be confused, or what
does it mean to be insulting.
