    visual basic web browser control

    I need to programmatically select and highlight some text on a webpage. In a visual basic web browser control.

    For instance I might have a text box where I would enter the word "car"

    The program needs to search the current webpage and select and highlight the 1st occurrence of that word.
    A next button is then required to select and highlight the 2nd occurrence of that word etc.

    In many web browsers you can already do just that. Press [Ctrl][F] and a text box pops up. Type in the word|phrase you're looking for. Press [F3] or [Enter] to jump to the next instance of that word|phrase.
