Hello everyone. I am trying to copy the complete content of one IHTMLDocument2 to another new instantiated copy of IHTMLDocument2. In pseudo code, it would be something like this:

IHTMLDocument2 newDoc.content() = oldDoc.content()

The reason why I'd like to do so, is simply that whenever a new webpage is loaded in the browser, i would like to create a copy of that page, process it while the original copy is being displayed to the user on screen. This way, the user wouldn't have to wait for the document to be processed before being displayed on screen.

Any thoughts would be truly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

(haven't tried it) I think you might be able to do this with innerHTML property.

Unfortunately, its not that simple! You'll be only copying the STRING content, however, i need to copy the whole page structure, along with the tags and scripts and everything.

Also be aware that the 'wait' that you are talking about is not generally the time to process the web page - it is the time to download the page through the network. Processing time is usually minimal compared with traversal through the wire.
