The HTML stream is created automatically when data arrives and the MIME
parser finds out that the body is of type HTML. You can see how the stream
is set up in function pumpData in


The stream stack builder function looks at the content type (text/html,
for example), and finds the appropriate stream. The callback handler is
called from

If you want to read a local file instead of a document with a HTTP URI
