Has anyone built a GUI class for a chat window output and input for C++
in a Windows programming environment?

All the MFC Windows classes for text, richeditctrl, etc, are junk, and I
want to develop a display and text input for html, so you can have
images, text with formatting, etc, displayed in a person to person, or
group chat window.

Does this make sense, and has anyone developed anything like this?

I have thought about using the MS Internet Explorer COM object, but it
is so huge...I think a lighter weight class would be better suited for
the task. Advice would be appreciated...thx!
