I knew this -- but as I said, I did not know how to import a make file (.mak)
into a Microsoft project (.mdp). I expected that this was the source of a
few problems -- which is why I mentioned it. I will go look at VC++ docs to
figure this out.

I might still give it a go, thanks. My HTML needs are very basic -- I just
might get asked for the list of URLS that are linked to from a document.

Maybe I wasn't clear. W/O a WSA Startup DNS lookups fail. I only found 
WSAStartup() called from HTEventInit(). As such -- my preemptive failed 
to run *unless I called HTEventInit()*.
