			if (myHttpWebRequest.HaveResponse)
				Stream streamResponse=myHttpWebResponse.GetResponseStream();
				StreamReader streamRead = new StreamReader( streamResponse );
				Char[] readBuff = new Char[256];

				Console.WriteLine("\nThe contents of Html Page are :  \n");	
				while (count > 0) 
					String outputData = new String(readBuff, 0, count);
					count = streamRead.Read(readBuff, 0, 256);
