Serious popup problem with this html code

I'm starting to try out this htmlEditor thing with my C# application. I modified the form1.cs file in the demohtmlapp so that it does a this.htmlEditor1.LoadUrl(url) instead of LoadDocument(s).

the url is just a simple html file consisting of the following:
<frameset rows="16%,84%">
<frameset cols="50%,50%">
<frame src="test" name="tl">
<frame src="test" name="tr">
<frame src="" name="bottom">

When I execute the program, I get POPUP HELL! I have so many IE instances popping up that I cannot close them fast enough. I had to ctl-alt-del and force quite demohtmlapp.exe to get the popups to stop, then spent about 30 seconds closing all the IE instances.

Is this a bug or is there something wrong with the html code above?

Your code isn't going to work as-is because the HTMLEditor won't understand relative urls like src="test". Further, I should think the popups are to do with the Yahoo url; or else you could have a loop in your code.

If you only want to display HTML, I should think the webbrowser control would be better.
