From textmgr.idl:

HRESULT IVsTextView::Initialize(

   [in] HWND hwndParent,
   [in] DWORD InitFlags,
   [in] const INITVIEW *pInitView

When you hook up your language service to the core text editor, the editor automatically provides you with a view, which it initializes. You only need to call Initialize to initialize a view that you created separately and hooked up later.
