#1 Access to DHTML object model?

One of the things I loved about the MSIE control is that it gave me full access to the DHTML object model. I could load a page, and then have the code count the links, change how the page looked, fill out forms, etc. I'll have to wait until I get home to check if this control supports it... but if it does, good... and if it doesn't, then it is something that needs to be worked on. :)

The control has limited read-only access to the DOM using the IE interfaces. It's something that could be improved upon but no one has volunteered to do the work :)
