I deliberately used the term "HTML engine" because the Internet Explorer
team decided to disable this feature.  However, it is still there if you use
it with another front end, e.g. as a HTML application.
The semantics of the about scheme is documented in the KB (not on MSDN,
except for my note).

I'd like to learn more about this. I wasn't able to reproduce it in
IE. Is it documented somewhere?
