Displaying a web page within Visio

A question was asked recently on the SuperUser forum: https://superuser.com/questions/1378502/can-i-add-a-webpage-browser-to-a-visio-diagram about how to add a view of a web page from a Visio diagram.
There is no built-in method of doing this but I thought I might be able to modify my Output Dialog for Visio, and I have managed to get something working.
Just install this addon, then run the file "test web page output.vsd" which the installer adds tou your desktop so it is easy to find.
Double-click the shape and a web browser window will open at my website (www.paulherber.co.uk). The web browser is not as complete as others but displays my website just as any other browser would. The only exception that I know of so far is that it doesn't run javascript so it does throw up an error but just continue and the page shows correctly.
The browser window may be moved and resized as required.
