 Web Browser: force read from file

I have one VB5 form with a Web Browser control, and every single time the
form is loaded I need to read one local HTML file. The machines on which the
application will be running all have dial-up internet connections.

One problem I am having is that I do not seem able to convince the Web
Browser control that it should read from the file and NOT try to go on-line.

Most time the browser opens the file. At times, it displays the "Connect /
Work Off Line" dialog. If I click "Stay Off Line", the browser properly
loads the file.

At this point I am getting a bit confused and I may be missing the point,
but it appears that the Web Browser decides - randomly - to display the
"Connect / Work Off Line" dialog box.

Could anybody suggest what is the best way to always force the browser to
read from the specified local file without attempting to go on-line? Thanks
in advance to all of you that will respond.
