  attr.ExtendedMessageAsPlainText = false;
  
  // Opens a text file holding HTML code
  var MyFile = aqFile.OpenTextFile("C:\\Work\\HTML_Code.txt", aqFile.faRead, aqFile.ctANSI);

  // Reads the HTML code from the file to a single string
  var str = MyFile.ReadAll();

  // Posts a log message with the HTML page as extended information
  Log.Message("Message Text", str, 300, attr);
}
