Using the navigate method in Windows Store apps

You can use the IHTMLWindow2::navigate method to load content inside your app's package to the main window, but if you use the IHTMLWindow2::navigate to open a URL not in the app's package, that URL will open in the browser instead. For more info, see How to link to external web pages.
