[Mono-list] Need help: writing a COM control.

I've also found some additional information on the IE COM API:
As well as a vb script (stupid, I know, but the only example I found).
must be saved a something.vbs:
Set MyIE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
do while MyIE.Busy
MyIE.Visible = 0
MyIE.Silent = True
Do While MyIE.ReadyState<>4
