Default Help w/Internet Control in VB.NET

Does anyone have sample code in VB.NET that demonstrates how to get to the innertext from a webpage like the Internet control did in VB6? I can't seem to get this to work:

' After creating a reference to the Microsoft Internet Controls library 1.1

Imports SHDocVw
WithEvents MyBrowser As New SHDocVw.InternetExplorerClass()

' Inside some click event


' After document completely loads.

Private Sub MyBrowser_DocumentComplete(ByVal pDisp As Object, ByRef URL As Object) Handles MyBrowser.DocumentComplete
        Dim strFileName = Directory.GetCurrentDirectory & "\temp\download.txt"
        Dim fs As New FileStream(strFileName, FileMode.OpenOrCreate)
        Dim sw As New StreamWriter(fs)

        MsgBox("Got HTML")
        sw.WriteLine("Document Complete")
        MyBrowser = Nothing
End Sub

The object interface does not support the OpenURL method and innertext properties that the VB6 control supported. While debugging, I can see the iinertext property that contains the text I want, but no way to get to it!
